One thing still missing from this Remote Desktop MMC Snap In is the ability to resort the list of remote desktops in alphabetic order. I was hoping that this would be fixed. It is really annoying to have 30 or more servers and not be able to find them quickly in a list. Can someone please help get this fixed before GoLive?

quickest way is to add your account to the "trustedinstaller" group, but be sure to remove yourself from the group as soon as you are done. Its a big security hazard.

Windows 7

Ah good to find this, I was just looking for this as I recently upgraded my work PC to 7. Being a sysadmin this is the tool I use most. I just wish they would allow the export and import of lists. I have hundreds of servers in my old one. Also, I'm surprised they don't allow sorting by name in the left pane.
