Two things that have always bugged me with the Remote Desktops Administrative Snap-in was that there were no options on the menu to customize the view, specifically, the status bar and standard buttons toolbar.
I’ve googled around trying to find a fix, then it dim 20W bulb went off in my head. Look at a standard MMC console and make one how I want it and copy the config to the TSMMC file.
It was pretty simple. The key line from the tsmmc.msc is:
<ViewOptions ViewMode="Report" ScopePaneVisible="true" NoStatusBar="true" NoStdButtons="true" DescriptionBarVisible="false" DefaultColumn0Width="200" DefaultColumn1Width="0"/> </View>
By adding NoStatusBar=”true” and NoStdButtons=”true” I was able to get more remote desktop “desktop”.
On my secondary monitor, my TS screen is now 1768×1000 vs. 1768×953. Not a big deal on a 1920×1080 monitor, but 47 pixels on smaller screens makes a big difference.
