Hi,

The link is just a shortcut to one that appears on your system, drag the icon from the start menu to the desktop to copy the shortcut, you will then be able to look at the properties and see where the original RDP file is, then you can right click and edit that, and it will reflect the changes to the one pinned to your start menu.

Thanks for your help. Seems poor you can not edit from there. If you drag to deaktop and open file location it just takes you to the .exe file. I have gone back to saving the connection as an rdp file and then dragging it back to the start menu!
