Fellow MVP pinged me tonight and said that a client was actually asking for Gotomypc rather than RWW because he didn’t want his icons moved.


Okay that’s a tad bit extreme of a reason to not use RWW…but if you have a client like this…http://www.iconsaver.com/index.html  check that out.  I am finding though.. and I’m not sure if Vista does this..that someone needs to figure out how to natively support dual screens remotely…because that is a need that does need to be fixed…. and hopefully Vista has it on the drawing board otherwise that will be a bummer for Terminal server access in the future….I’m about to buy another monitor for home… as I miss my dual monitors I have at the office…

  1. You had me confused there, the title should read…………Why does RWW move the icons on the desktop?

  2. Shawn says:

    The reason for the icons moving is simply connecting with a different screen resolution then the one you would use locally. So if you have your screen resolution set at 1024×768 be sure to use the same resolution when connecting via RWW.
    As a test, change your screen resolution on your desktop to a smaller res and back again…icons get moved around to fit on the smaller resolution and stay that way when you return to the larger res…
