screen shotI would like to have a default computer address/name automatically show up in the COMPUTER field each time the remote desktop client is started.  Is this possible for me to set it via registry/shortcut switch, etc?  See arrow on the pic.

Default.rdp is a hidden file stored in the My Documents folder.  You can set up the default and send it out via a script or manually.

Click the Options button on the MSTSC window and you can Save As also.

Run mstsc /? on the command prompt to show all available options. You can create a shortcut with the custom switches.
