How to Create a "RemoteApp and Desktop Connections" Shortcut in Windows 7 and Windows 8

information   Information
RemoteApp and Desktop Connections (Workspaces Center) is a feature that you can use to access programs and desktops (remote computers and virtual computers) made available to you by your workplace's network administrator. When you're at home, you can access all the programs and computers that you would normally need to be at work to use. With a connection, all of these resources are located in one easy-to-access folder on your computer. Using these resources is almost the same as if they were on your local network or on your computer.

This tutorial will show you how to create or download a RemoteApp and Desktop Connections shortcut that you can use or pin where you like in Windows 7 and Windows 8.
