Remote Desktop settings

I log in to 6 different remote desktops on a regular basis. I have separate .rdp files for each, but Windows only stores one set of login info or something like that, so no matter which rdp I open it pre-poulates with the last credentials used, which may not apply to what I want to connect to. Ideally, when I open an rdp, I'd like it to log in automatically with the correct info, but at the very least I'd like the correct user name pre-poulated. Can anything be done? Even a 3rd party solution would be ok.

Been in your shoes.   I've even done the whole bunch of shortcuts idea too, didn't work.  The shortcuts just didn't maintain the login info.       I have about 25 systems i RDP into regularly,   This solved all my problems,
