When you remote control a session on 2003R2 terminal server it defaults to Ctrl * or it remembers what i selected.  I can not seem to be able to default the Hot key in 2008R2 to Ctrl *.   Any Ideas?

The default is {Ctrl+*} but note that the "*" must be typed from numeric pad.

To change the hot key for a specific session:
* Right-click the session and select Remote Control from the shortcut menu.
* When the Remote Control dialog box opens, choose the hot key that terminates the session.

does not look like there is a way to change the default.  I'll just get used to Ctrl Tab...

could not find a way to change it.
Anyone else want to take this question on?

I believe it's unacceptable that there is no way to change the default HotKey.

The mere fact that the character chosen is the 64th of 65 choices indicates that there is an argument, or place counter, that identifies the 64th data element in the string presented.

C'mon guys and gals ... somebody is smart enough to figure this out ...
