Restoring the RDP File Association with mstsc.exe

If you have elected to do so during the installation, the *.rdp file extension has been associated with Remote Desktop Manager , this means that it does not use the mstsc.exe client from Microsoft anymore.


From an elevated command prompt (run as administrator), run the following command:

ftype RDP.File="%systemroot%\system32\mstsc.exe" "%1"


Add the command above to the domain logon script to fix all of your users at once.
