windows 2008 remembers other credentials

I've logged into a few remote machines I manage and happen to notice that specifically Windows Server 2008 remembers credentials, generally of last rdp session.  It's a hastle that it doesn't defaultly remember the correct workgroup and I manually have to enter it in, otherwise it tries to login to the last domain used.

Could you clarify your question?  What are you hoping to accomplish?

MSkrezecAuthor Commented:
Well, Windows 2008 login is remembering domain from last session.

Let's say address: abc.com
user: abc\user
(domain being abc)

so upon a login to xyz.com would prompt me to enter a username and password on domain abc.com, rather than it's local domain or none at all.  

it's a bit confusing to know exactly which remote desktop you have up while working on several windows.

You are on a Windows Server 2008 machine and remoting into other Windows machines on various domains.  You want the RDP connection to default to the domain of the machine to which you are connecting when it prompts for password.

You will need to save an RDP session icon for each machine to which you connect.  Have it remember your last connection credentials.
