Windows 7: Auto-Login on end of RDP session

14 Apr 2010   #1

Auto-Login on end of RDP session


Let me start by saying THANK YOU to the MS devs who decided to put some real attention into making the RDP experience in Windows 7 not just more tollerable but downright impressive!

I have a hotkey set up on my ubuntu laptop which, when pressed, pops open a Remote Desktop window connected to a Windows 7 desktop workstation.

When the RDP session is created, the user is logged out from the workstation. Then, when the RDP session ends, I have to contact the user and tell them it's ok to log back in.

Is there a way to tell the remote Windows 7 workstation to automatically log back in as a given user when I close the RDP session?

Thanks in advance to any wizards (winzards?) who might be able to offer some insight!

You can configure the computer to automatically log in, but then it will do it all the time. I don't know if it's possible to schedule a log in but it may be. If it is, you could run a batch file that waits X amount of time after you open it to automatically log in the user.

Login with RDP, without bumping current session.
Warning! This is only for advanced users, and at your own risk. Normally when you log in to a remote computer with RDP (Remote Desktop), the current session on that computer is automatically logged of. I found a site named "Missing Remote" and they made a script to prevent that, thus...
