Vista and up: Remote Desktop (RDP/MSTSC) title bar can be dragged out of the way :-)

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/04/26

I just found out that the title bar of a Remote Desktop (RDP/MSTSC) session can be dragged when running the RDP client from Windows Vista and on!

I pushed the mouse button inside the title bar right outside the button areas, and then accidentally moved the mouse.
The bar then moved :-)

This is great for instance when you use an RDP connection to a machine hosting VM’s (that also have their title bars).
Previously it was hard to click the latter, but now it is dead easy: just move the RDP title bar :-)

Such a subtle UI change, that I wish I checked this a long time ago (sometimes using things for a long time makes you numb in checking new stuff in updates versions <g>).
