Turn Off Printer Redirection on Remote Desktops .msc

I am needing to disable printer redirection when using the Remote Desktops console [tsmmc.msc] under Administrative Tools -> Remote Desktop Services - Remote Desktops to connect to all of my servers. I know I can turn off the option on the 'normal' remote desktop [MSTSC.exe], but I cannot see any options for it on the individual connections or on the console generically. I am connecting from Windows 7 [Pro & Ultimate] to Server 2008 R2

run -> gpedit.msc
navigate to:

Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Terminal Server\Printer Redirection

Enable "Do not allow client printer redirection".

You can apply this via GP if you want to disable it on multiple boxes.

Thanks for that, on server 2008 it was slightly different, but that got me in the right direction:

Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Printer Redirection

I am not looking to stop it on all servers or a whole group of them, I am wanting to be able to turn the option on or off per connection. If this is not possible with the Remote Desktops console, are there any other good, recommended RDP programs that can list all my connections & easily switch between them?

I was recommended Remote Desktop Connection Manager elsewhere, that does what I need better, but the GPO settings are good for turning if off for everyone connecting to that server.
