RDP setup

I often need to connect to servers via RDP. I’ve found these posts below helpful for configuring RDP connection settings, specifically getting the new RDP window to open on the screen I want in the position I want.

Firstly, GrandPixel’s comment on this blog post at hydrous.net at 9:00pm on August 17, 2010.

Secondly, this post at blogs.msdn.com

The final RDP file contents for me are:

desktopheight:i:900

Hopefully, others looking to open the RDP windows to a specified location will find the two posts above of use.
