Remote Desktop Services - Desktop Shortcut To App

Hi There,

I have a remote desktop services server and I know there is a way to setup shortcuts on users desktops directly to the apps. Can anyone tell me how to do this?

Thanks

Ok, first you need to create the published apps on the terminal server which generates RDP shortcuts for you for the individual applications.
There should be a TS RemoteApp Manager in Administrative Tools > Terminal Services?
In the right hand column there is a "Add RemoteApp programs" wizard to create the shortcuts for you.

type: mstsc on your command line
On your Remote Desktop Connection screen setup  the server and other settings.
Under "Connection settings" click on Save As

I think you're talking about published apps availble in Windows Server 2008 with terminal server CALs. Are you using Server 2008?

Hi Clonyxlro,

Thanks for this but it is not quite what I mean. Remote Desktop Services has a facility where you can access the applications via Terminal Services but without opening an RDP session, this is done via https://server/rdweb

There is a way to store these shortcuts on a users desktop but I can't find out how, do you knwo how to do this?

Thanks
