Just a quick note. I fell in love today. Microsoft released a tool that is very similar to its server cousin but better and for client. It’s called Remote Desktop Connection Manager and it is glorious and it is here:
What’s so glorious you say?
- I spend most of my day (well, the fun part anyway) neck deep in about 9 VMs. This little dude lets me configure a group so that I can quickly log in using the same U/P to all 9 of them, and keep live thumbnails on them at all times.
- When I want to go into a specific machine, I right click and hit full screen – poof…to come back to thumbnails, I just hit the restore button and poof – thumbnails – live thumbnails mind you
- In thumbnail mode, I just click once on the itty bitty screen and start typing. If you know what you’re trying to type, you can save the hassle of even opening up the screen – wouldn’t recommend it form much more than basic text commands.
- There’s more, but I promised quick so – yeah, go get that!
