Cool Tool: Royal TS
· 2008-10-10 09:43 by Thijs Kroesbergen for Brokenwire.NET

Yesterday my attention was brought to this tool "Royal TS".

Because I often work on projects involving more than just a handful of servers I use remote desktop a lot.

At first, with not too many machines around, remote desktop just works great. But as the list of machines grows I just can't remember all server names, the usernames needed and what the server is used for.

This is where Royal TS kicks in! With this (small!) application you can manage your remote desktop sessions. It will keep a list of all the servers, you can add descriptions and it will remember usernames and password.

And when running multiple sessions your task bar won't get cluttered because all sessions can run within one application. (this is optional, you can still have a window for each session)

Of course Royal TS isn't the only tool out there. I've been using Terminals as well. This open-source project may have more features, but the feel just isn't right. (The menu bars and windows do wacky things every once in a while)

So, if you ever use remote desktop, try one of these tools. I'm sure you'll never use  "Win+R -> mstsc" again ;)

  1. What I really like about Royal TS is the option to map the Win-key. Finally I can use WIN, WIN+E, WIN+R etc. in my RDPs!!
