This entry explains how to Create a (RDP) Remote Desktop Connection Shortcut on Windows 7, XP, & Server 2003.

Nobody likes to type an IP or network address if you do not have to. At work we have so many IP's it's hard to track, whats what.

I personally like to use mRemote to manage network connections, but here is a simple way just to create a remote desktop connection so that all you have to do is double click an icon for remote access.

How to Create a Remote Desktop Connection Shortcut

  • Go to your desktop
  • Right click on it
  • Create new shortcut
  • In the Type the location of the item enter this
  • mstsc.exe /v: /w:800 /h:600
  • Be sure to change the to the IP that you wish to connect to remotely
  • Notice the w:800 & h:600 - This is the width and the height of the remote desktop connection window upon double clicking. You can change these values at any time to suit your window.
  • To go full screen with your remote desktop connection shortcut simply remove w:800 /h:600 and replace it with /f

    I hope this helps. If you have any tips or tricks on remote desktop connection shortcuts please leave a comment.
