I need my users to make sure the box "Local Resources" is ticked by default when they make a remote desktop connection.

Is there a way to do this using group policy - or some other method?

You can preconfigure a default.rdp file and copy it into a users profile when they login.

The default .rdp file is saved as a hidden file in your My Documents folder. To edit an .rdp file and change the connections settings it contains, right-click the file, and then click Edit.
