Hi,

What I need is when a user tries to connect on a Terminal server (Windows 2012)  by remote desktop then he can only work on the windows of the Terminal Server and can't go back to their desktop until he closes the remote desktop session.

Is it possible?

Thanks

This cannot be done. You could potentially configure a kiosk type setup where remote desktop could never be closed. But to have it conditionally enforced rl be a foreground app onku when running, yet have it closeable is just too contradictory as far as requirements go.

"Remote Desktop" means just that.

You are using your local computer to access a "remote" computer. Your local computer is the one making the initial connection, and thereby maintains control of the session.

What you do on the remote desktop has nothing to do with what occurs on the local computer.

As Cliff stated, "This cannot be done."... it is the nature of the beast.
