If you are a frequent user of Remote Services, or you don't want to navigate to the website, it is possible to set up a PC or Mac to keep .rdp files as favorites and launch them directly from Microsoft Remote Desktop. Launching .rdp files this way is done much in the same way as for any software installed onto your local machine. 

You must have administrative rights on your computer to complete these instructions. If you do not have administrative rights, you will need to access Remote Services via the website.

Choose Your Operating System 

Windows 10 

mac OSX

Once you have set up your computer to access Remote Services, you should understand how to access files.
