Remote Desktop Manager

If you have a need to connect to various servers using Remote Desktop, and are anything like me, your desktop will probably be cluttered with numerous remote desktop shortcuts to connect to these machines, which can get quite unecessary mess.

Fortunately, there’s help at hand.  Came across this open source tool which helps keep them more organised, RemoteDesktopManager by Daniel Knippers. It allows grouping of connections, and existing connections can be imported by simply dragging and dropping them over the main window (though you’ll need to manually choose which group they belong to).


The password can’t be set from within the application due to the way Microsoft stores these, so if you need to do this, you’ll need to create the connection from the standard Remote Desktop application with the password and ‘Save password’ option checked, save the file, and then import it into RDM by dragging it over the main window.
