How can I copy from server / paste to client when using RDP so I don't have to open the mapped drive on my client machine ?

Maybe some type of special software/etc ?

I think you mean copy an icon/document from your desktop on server and paste icon/document on client desktop?  Or are you just wanting to copy and paste text?

If you have server which is Windows Server 2008, it has got feature of using clipboard to copy such data not only Text but files as well. You simply have to use copy paste option while copying any such Files or any data.

Also, if you're not admin of this server, the admin may have a GPO set up or restriction on the clipboard.
