Standard Shell Overview (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)
This topic describes the Windows Embedded CE Standard Shell, also known as the Enterprise Terminal shell.
The Windows Embedded CE Standard Shell is based on the Windows-based desktop and resembles the shell on Windows-based desktop operating systems. It includes a desktop with program icons, a Start menu, a taskbar, and a system notification area.
At startup time, the Windows Embedded CE Standard Shell is displayed on the screen. It contains the CETSC icon on the desktop. The user must select the CETSC icon to connect to a remote server. The user input is saved in an .rdp file.
For more information, see Terminal Services Client Configuration through the .rdp File.
