i have a terminal server running 2012 foundation server.
in older versions i could take and pull up the connected users and then right click and shadow that user to see what they are doing/seeing on their screen.

I do not see that in 2012 foundation server.  
Can someone tell me (with detail) how to get this to work?
Screens would be helpful

Thanks!

Desktop shadowing went away. It isn't a limitation of foundation, it is just a deprecated feature across the board.

Nothing. There is no in-box solution to shadow another session. You have to go 3rd party.
