Hi everyone, Let me get straight to the point: Does anyone know if my Windows Remote Desktop locks (or hides) the actual screen of a remote PC? A co-worker said yes but I just wanted to confirm.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

When you connect via Remote Desktop, by default a new session will be
started for you, but there are methods to connect to the existing
session, provided you are using the same credentials as the logged in
user.

    Do you mean can someone see what you are doing if you have remote desk-topped into their machine? It may all depend on the utility used to make the connection. Some will basically work like you were still sitting there. I was doing some work from home and a coworker saw everything I was doing.. IT could be good if you are trying to teach someone but if you want to do it undetected you may have to be careful how you establish the connection.

    Yes - it automatically locks the Windows screen of the end-user.
