Use this tip next time you need to remote into a computer from a computer that other people use. This will not save your computer hostname and/or IP address in the computer field of Remote Desktop.
How to hide your RDP sessions on Windows 7 using a new command line parameter /public.
When you launch Remote Desktop Connection from a Windows computer, you typically would see a list of previously typed remote connection computers.
What if this was a public computer, that everyone uses with the same username?
If you use the computer and remoted into maybe your home computer, you wouldn’t want your home’s IP address (or maybe dynamic dns name) stored for other people to see.
That’s where the /public switch comes in!
On the surface, you won’t notice any difference when using the program, but the info you type int he Computer field will not be saved.
That way, the next time someone else launches Remote Desktop, your computer/server/dyndns would not be displayed in the drop down.
Note: By default, the /public switch only works on Windows 7 and later operating systems. You can get it to work on XP machines by updating Remote Desktop Connection to the latest version.
