I have setup a Microsoft RD Web Access URL but when I login with Chrome and click on the RDP icon to open a session, a .rdp file is downloaded. I can run this file from the folder it was download to and login. But I would prefer clicking on the RDP icon opened immediately WITHOUT having to download the file. Is this possible?

I have had much better luck with Microsoft RD Web Access when using Internet Explorer. The same scenario is also true of some third party remote control software platforms, such as that used by Logmein.com. IE just works, while other browsers do not - at least not like you would expect them to.

So can the web rdp icon be opened within a browser without downloading it? If so, how?

Log in with IE and click on the RDP session to open an icon. Same steps you outlined above but using Chrome for a browser before trying to launch the RDP icon.
