I need to be able to enable remote desktop capabilities on a large number of computers on my Server 2008 domain.  By enable remote desktop I mean right-click on Computer and go to the system properties.  Is there any way to do this via a Group Policy setting?

Remote Desktop is disabled by default in Windows 7, If your want to apply the settings via the GPO, Here’s what you need to enable:

1.Computer Configuration/administrative templates/Windows Components/Remote Desktop Services/Remote Desktop Session Host/Connections/allow users to connect remotely using Remote Desktop services" enabled.

2.Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Network > Network Connections > Windows Firewall > Domain Profile > Windows Firewall: Allow Inbound Remote Desktop Exception
