Remote Desktop Session Host User Configuration

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

The properties of a user account can be configured to provide a Remote Desktop Services-specific profile and home folder. This profile and home folder will only be used when a user establishes a remote session with an RD Session Host server. A separate profile for RD Session Host sessions should be assigned to a user because many of the common options that are stored in profiles, such as screen savers and animated menu affects, are not desirable when using Remote Desktop Services.
