required. So if you're connecting to a computer around the world and you're going to have to cross a lot of really slow WAN links to get there, you may need to crank this down to a lower color setting. Let's go ahead and leave it set to 32 for now. Now let's go over to the local resources tab. This tab is really useful, it allows us to specify the interaction between the hardware on my local machine here and the hardware installed in the remote machine. For example, we can configure remote audio settings, we can specify that when a sound is played on the remote computer, that it also be played here on the local computer and that'sselected by default. In addition we can also configure this system to allow recording from this computer, which will be saved on the remote computer. We'll leave that turned off we don't need torecord anything today. Notice down here that there are local devices and resources that we can use in the remote session.For example if I have a printer connected to this local system here, then I will able to create a document on the remote computer through the Remote Desktop connection, hit File, and then Printand have that print job redirected through the Remote Desktop session to this local system and then have that print job sent to my local printer. Even if that remote system is not connected to that printer at all. Very useful. Another useful feature is the ability to use the clipboard. This means I can select text in a document on this computer and then switch over to the remote session and paste that same text in a document running on that remote computers system or vice versa, I can copy text from the remote desktop and paste it into a document on this desktop. Again, that can be really useful, especially when you're troubleshooting problems and you need to copy and paste information back and forth between systems. Let's go down here and click More. Notice here that we have the option to share smart cards. We can share hardware ports. We can even share drives. If I expand drives I can pick which drives will be accessible in the remote session.

For example we have the data drive E, if I mark this option data E, then as soon as I establish theRemote Desktop connection there will be a shared drive on the remote system that wasn't there before that points back through the Remote Desktop session to my local E drive and if I were to say open a word processing document, put some text in it and do File, Save, I would have the option of saving it to the E drive on my local system. In which case the disk IO operation would be redirected through the Remote Desktop session and be written to the local hard drive here. Let's go ahead and leave that option enabled, and I'll click OK. Let's go over to the experience tab. Be aware that a Remote Desktop connection does require a certain amount of network bandwidth depending upon how many features of the Remote Desktop we want to be able to view here locally. So what we need to do is specify how fast our network is and then that will determine how many of these Windows desktop features we're going to be able to usethrough the Remote Desktop session. By

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
