Remote Desktop Question

By nerdy ·
Hi there!
We use remote desktop kind of frequently in our company and well I have a couple computers that dont allow us to "Log off" our remote session, it only gives us the "disconnect" options on the Start Menu. Can anyone tell me how to change it so that it says "Log off" also?? Why I ask is when we just "Disconnect" the computer still says it is "Locked" by the other person that used it.

Someone in another forum suggested this:
--sounds like a Group Policy issue. On the remote machine go to Start->Run and type (w/o quotes) "gpedit.msc", then navigate to Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment and make sure the user has full administrative rights on that machine. After that, there is another option to Hide/Show Log On/Off in the Start Menu. I can't remember the exact path for that, but it is under User Configuration\Windows Settings if I recall correctly-- But it didnt help me any... I found the Log on/off in the User Config, but it wanted scripts and I dont know how or where to find them... So any other help would be greatly appreciated!!

It sounds like you are using the Classic start menu. To show the Logoff button follow these steps:

1. Right-click the taskbar and press Properties.

2. Select the Start Menu tab.

3. Make sure that Classic Start menu is checked and press Customize.

4. Check the Display Log Off box and press OK.

5. Press OK.

Sounds also like you may be confusing the Start menus between computers. You should 'log off' the host computer, the one you are connected TO.

If you choose the wrong taskbar, IE the client or connecting computer, your option is to 'disconnect'.
