Easily Manage multiple Remote Desktop Connections with RD Organizer

Remote Desktop Connections is one of the most used inbuilt application in Windows, Specially by System Admins or Developers who connect to a lot of remote machines to either deploy or fix computers.

In Windows it is possible to save each such Remote desktop connection settings including credentials as .RDP file but if you have a lot of them, it becomes difficult to manage each of them as an individual file. So today, we are introducing you to an application which allows you to manage each of such connections.

  • Remember all your connection in one place and can backup it up.

ID Card :

This credential manager lets you create cards where you can store username / password which you can use with connection manager to apply to any new connection.

RDC Create Card

Now you can add a password directly to any connection but of you have a lot of connection with same credentials, it is better to create a card and then apply that card to that group. So any time you change the password for set of machines you dont have to bother for all.

Connections :

The remote desktop connections have all the features which you see while using the windows remote desktop connection and it also supports Gateway if you are connecting through VPN. You can also connect to console of remote machine and change the port number if required.

In this section, you can change your ID card if you want, which can be different from the default id card applied to the connection.

Quick Connection :

If you want to quickly connect to any remote machine, without saving anything in this software, you can use the Quick Connection mode which can be initiated either by using the quick connection icon, available in bottom left or go to Settings > Quick Connect.

    HI Ashish,
    i worked with RDO and last week the software show me just grey screen.
    i tried to reinstall the software and i checked my file on other machine and everything working fine.
    i also tried to update Java and flash if needed
    any other idea what can be the root cause for that?

    • Which OS you were using on and which OS you were connecting to ?

  • Matt

    Can you tell me how you got it to windows 8?, I have not been able to get it to work

    • I haven’t tried it on Windows 8 Yet. There is a pretty good app on Windows 8 Store. Try that. Search for Remote Desktop

  • truth

    it doesn’t work on windows 8 not windows server 2012 so please correct your blog and stop spreading lies…

  • Knaphie

    Truth,

    Try a little research before reacting buddy. You are probably trying to use RDO Version 1.4.4. Try downloading the latest version (1.4.5) from here… http://appmazing.bitbucket.org/

    This adds functionality for Remote Desktop Client Version 8. i.e.RDO for Windows 8 and Server 2012.

    In addition, it fixes the issue whereby RDO stops working in Windows 7 after installing MS update (or better known as MS patch), specifically KB2592687. This patch updates Remote Desktop from V7 to V8.

    For info, I’ve been using RDO for years as my preferred Remote Desktop tool. I find it outstanding with regards to organising Remote Desktop connections.

    Hope this helps
