Remote Desktop Connection for MAC - How to save connection data

Posted on 2011-10-26
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have installed Remote Desktop Connection for MAC on my Apple laptop. It appears to work well allowing me to connect with the PC's I support. However, I do not see a way that I can save the connection data, i.e., the IP addresses for a connection.  I would like to create a shortcut for each of the computers I support and not have to enter the IP address each time. Likewise I would like to access more than one computer at t time which the application does not seem to allow.

    Once you have connected, pull down the File menu on the Apple RDC menu bar to "save as" and save as settings file. Then when you next want to connect, double click on the settings file, not the RDC app.

    strung: Thank you for the obvious.  I was looking for options on the RDC screen as would be in Microsoft, rather than on the menu bar where everything is on a MAC.
