    [Help] Remote Desktop Connection


    How do you modify the 'Remote Desktop Connection' application to login as the host account rather than remote account?

    For example,
    My main PC shall be called the remote account and the HTPC downstairs will be called the host account.
    On my Main PC, I will remote into the HTPC downstairs and move some stuff around. When I turn the display on for my HTPC downstairs I come to a lock screen. I don't have a Mouse and Keyboard for this PC and I don't want one, there is enough remotes etc downstairs.
    To fix this problem before, I have had splash top installed where I will remote in from my phone or main PC and unlock the HTPC and then all it good.
    RDC is the fastest and most stable of them all so I would prefer to use that.
    Is there anything I can do?

    Hi Tom, welcome to the Ten Forums.

    The easiest solution to do would be to use the tscon command on the remote host, your HTPC, as told at the end of Part Three in the Ten Forums tutorial RDC - Connect Remotely to your Windows 10 PC - Windows 10 Forums

    Tip   Tip
    To unlock the remote host automatically when you finish the remote session, give this command in an elevated command prompt on the remote host:

    Code:
    tscon 1 /dest:console
    This will end the remote session and unlock the remote host, restoring the current local user's desktop.

    Instead of disconnecting the remote connection as usual, run the tscon command on remote host. If you want to make it simpler you can create a shortcut for the tscon command on remote host desktop.

    Can I not make this happen automatically?

    Please, how much more automatically you think it could be made?

    If you followed my suggestion in my last post you have a shortcut on your remote host desktop to run the tscon command by double clicking it. Instead of closing the remote session from your remote client with one mouse click and leaving the remote host showing the Welcome screen, you'd need to use a double click instead on remote host to automatically close the remote session and sign the current user back in on remote host. A double click instead of a single click.

    Short of the remote desktop connection telepathically monitoring your thoughts and closing the session and signing the current user in on the remote host as soon as you think of it, it can't be more automatic. Sadly the telepathy and computers work not well together.
