Many of you probably use Remote Desktop to connect to your clients computers. Sometimes you manage to lock the two sessions you are allowed and you can’t reach the computer. What you need to do then is to connect using the console command. The easiest way to do this is to create a bat-file with the following content:
mstsc %1 /console

Now, you just have to drag-n-drop the rdp-files on the batfile and the connection will be made using the /console and you can access the computer. No cmd-hacking, no remembering the syntax… just drag-n-drop! You have to be a local administrator to connect using /console, but arn’t you always?

To log out the old connections, open the task manager and select the tab users. Mark the users that do not have id=0 (thats the console connection) and select logoff.

Hope it is usefull!
