Situation:  Connect to VM-1 via RD. Then connect a server from VM-1.  On the server there are now 2 Remote Desktop Connection Bars, one behind the other.  Unfortunately the Server connection bar is behind the VM-1 bar so I cannot get back to the VM-1 Desktop.  Is there a toggle.  I realize I can pin ther Server bar but it doesn't always stay.  I need a toggle.

USE VNC for the second session or don't use full screen mode.

I hope this helps !

Thanks for the input.  I realize this is a workaround but I was hoping for a way to actually scroll through the Connection Bars.  For instance if I open yet another remote session on the server then I might get 2 or 3 (or more) connection bars on top of each other.  Is there a way to toggle through them?

Thanks.  For what ever reason now an individual Connection bar will automatically retract allowing acces to the bars below it.  Before all the bars would retact at the same time so I could not see the 2nd or 3rd bar.

i was looking for a solution to this problem and stumbled upon this post....and then figured it out on my own and thought i would share.  

when you have many remote sessions open at one time and all of the remote desktop windows are on top of each other so that it is hard or impossible to get to one underneath the other without logging off, please simple left click on the blue bar and drag it to the left or the right.  i was able to move 3-4 remote sessions from left to right across my screen.  awesome!
