Work: Remote Desktop Home: 2 PC's - Work desktop has different layout

At Home the user remote desktop through VPN to work PC - One home PC has one desktop layout for the work PC and another PC has different layout.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Normal. If you use RDP through VPN, the work computer will be logged off and logged in as the remote user.

Sounds all normal to me. What is your question?
Richard SchilkeOnline Marketing and ITAuthor Commented:
The user expected to have the same desktop layout as they do when they are logged in at work. They are using the same work login credentials. Seems like it should be the same layout.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Assuming they use Windows RDP they should have the same programs available as they do at work. The layout of the icons may be rearranged because of resolution changes. I fit my icons into an 800x600 space to avoid this.

Did you check the user?

I have confirmed that the Desktop is the same. Icon layout can vary depending on resolution.

Did they get logged in with a Temporary Profile?
