Sort the Remote Desktop (tsmmc.msc)

Like many other system administrator, I spend the mostly of my day using the remote desktop (tsmmc.msc) to remote server. I manage around 20 server and find that the remote desktop tool are the easiest way to connect to a console session, however the tsmmc it doesn’t have the ability to sorting the list of server alphabetically.

I love and hate this tool. The main feature is that you can manage all rdp sessions in a single window, and it’s connects to the console by default,

but the main disadvantage is no sorting order whatsoever.

I found two alternative way to sorting the rdp sessions, the first one are create a folder full of .rdp files set to connect to the console (like picture below).

And the second one are install the alternative RDP software. After googling try to search rdp software, I found this great tool called RD Tabs.

As you can see in the above picture, the RD tabs has ability to sort the server name and has the Tab’s look just like Firefox or IE Tabs, Simple to navigate and Distinguish.
