Fixed – Copy Paste not working in Remote Desktop Connection – Windows 10

Copy and Paste which was working as usual suddenly stopped working one fine day.

Had the following setting enabled

Restarted the following process on the remote machine, but that also didn’t help.

Finally updating the following setting on the remote machine helped fix the issue

Go to command prompt – open Local Group Policy Editor

gpedit

Navigate to: Computer Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Windows Components \ Remote Desktop Services \ Remote Desktop Session Hosts \ Device and Resource Redirection \ Do not allow clipboard redirection

Although it was not configured so it should not have affected the setting, however explicitly set is as Disabled.

Restart the remote server. This fixed the issue. (do the same for the client machine as well if that doesn’t work).

Hope it helps..

Fixed – Windows 10 Remote Desktop (RDP) not saving credentials.

Recently even after saving the credentials in connection settings to an RDP file, every time we were opening it, it was asking us to enter the password.

The below steps helped us to fix the issue.

Open Windows Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) from the command prompt.

Go to Local Computer Policy – Administrative Templates – System – Credentials Delegation.

Click on Allow delegating fresh credentials, select the option Enabled. Click on Show button and add the value TERMSRV/*

Repeat the step for

  • Allow delegating fresh credentials with NTML – Only server authentication
  • Allow delegation saved credentials
  • Allow delegating saved credentials with NTML – Only server authentication

Then open Credential Manager from the command prompt and a windows credential.

Add a generic credential as shown below

e.g.

Lastly make sure prompt for credentials is set to 0.

After making these changes we were able take RDP to the server without it asking for password.

Hope it helps..
