Remote Desktop logon with Restricted User

I have made all workstation users on my domain Restricted User.  I do like to be able to use Remote Desktop to logon to their desktop interactively for troubleshooting purposes, but now that they are Restricted Users, I am unable to log on unless I use my Domain Administrator account which logs the current user off.  Is there a way to override these settings with a group policy of some sort?

There is a Remote Desktop Users group on each workstation; if you add a user to that group, will the Remote Desktop Users group membership override the Restricted User setting?

What you are looking to do is remote assistance not remote desktop.  The difference is that remote desktop is a takeover and remote assistance is interactive.

Below is a set of instructions that seem to have promise.

Remote desktop to a workstation always logs out the current user. (unless you log in using their own userid, in which case it connects to the current session, but their screen goes blank while you work)

You can connnect using Remote Assistance and see what their screen looks like, and interact with it.  The user can send you a Remote assistance request from the help and support screen.

You should be able to set your account to connect to their machines via rdp - properties for my computer, remote tab, and add your user as having permissions;
You need to set terminal services configuration to allow shared desktop
