How can I programmatically save files to server-disk when Connected to Remote Desktop when the files are on local machine copied into the clipboard?

I don't mean "open Explorer and hit CTRL+V" or use \\tsclient\c....
When doing this locally I use OpenClipBoard, GetClipboardData and DragQueryFile... but this doesn't work when using it on Win10/2008R2 Remote desktop "server" when files are copied on local disk onto clipboard..

Any suggestions?
Last resort is finding a way to open Windows Explorer in a new directory and hitting CTRL+V/using API to paste it.. I'll take suggestions here too :)
