So you have a printer installed on your Microsoft Windows computer, but the printer is not showing in your Remote Desktop session. There are a few things to check when you experience this issue. I was hoping however, that when the administrator logs on, these settings would not take effect and the Adminstrator would be able to go directly to the desktop of the server. I have all of our printers installed local.
Ensure that you have the Printers option selected in your Remote Desktop settings.Choose Properties and then choose the Client Settings tab. In the RDP-Tcp Properties dialog, click the Client Settings tab. I am also unable to change the setting on the redirected printer in the remote session because it is greyed out. As I found out, this doesn't happen and the program automatically starts the same for the Administrator as it does for any other client logging on. I set the RDP-TCP properties so that when a client logs on, the client settings are overriden and a particular program automatically starts. In the middle pane, under Connections, right click on RDP-Tcp and click Properties.
On the TS-server, Open Remote Desktop Session Host Config, then right-click on RDP-TCP.Is there a way I can not have these settings apply to the Administrator but to all other TS users. Under Client Settings tab Under Redirection - Disable the following Check the Windows Printer. I have the department ID's turned on on both the remote system and the local systems, yet the redirected printer this setting is disabled.
