How to configure Remote Desktop to save frequent connections

I once seen a user that had RDP in his Start Menu and there was a flyout of several saved connections and below the saved connections was a list of the most recent connections. How do I setup saving a list of most frequently used RDP connections?

Hello,

When you use remote desktop it autmatically saves the connections in the list. This list may disappear when you do a cleanup or run any cleanup software.

I use a program called VisionApp to manage my connections as I have a few.

I understand it saves a drop down list of the recent connections. What I want to setup is a Flyout of saved servers. What I seen a while back was the user had RDP pinned to the Start Menu and when he hovered over it, a list would Flyout to the right. There was maybe 6 or 7 "Saved" connections, then below that it said Recent and there was another 5 or so under there.

Ahh ok, right click remote desktop connection on the start menu and click pin to start menu. It should do this.
