I have a client desktop running Windows 8.1 that is used by multiple employees.  The client desktop has one icon that connects to remote desktop services on a Windows 2012 R2 server.  Without logging out and back in on the client, I need each employee to be able to connect to the RDS server and see their own desktop.  How can I get the RDS connection to require login credentials and thereby display that user's session desktop?

don't allow the rdp client to save credentials.

    Local Computer Policy ➞ Computer Configuration ➞ Administrative Templates ➞ Windows Components ➞ Remote Desktop Services ➞ Remote Desktop Connection Client

        Prompt for credentials on the client computer
        Do not allow passwords to be saved

Your solution works when connecting using the Remote Desktop Connection.  I was attempting to access the remote desktop using Access RemoteApp and desktops, which doesn't request user credentials.  I am fine using the Remote Desktop Connection.  Thank you!!
