I'm Getting an Invalid connection file error when trying to RDP from a Windows 10 PC to a Windows 2k8 server. I have added the server to the trusted sites in Internet explorer. Is there something else that needs to be done to make it work? Prior to doing a Windows 10 upgrade RDP to that server worked fine.

any ideas on how to fix this?

The file is usually called Default.rdp and is located in your Documents folder (C:\Users\username\Documents).  You can delete it and the next time that you launch Remote Desktop Client, it will get recreated.  It is a hidden file, so you may have to turn that on in folder options.
