Posts Tagged ‘shortcuts’

Most of the lists I’ve seen people put together have the Remote Desktop (RDP) shortcut first with the corresponding desktop shortcut after. That doesn’t makes sense to me. I’m used to looking on the left side for what I want to match, then across to find the required entry I need. So here is my contribution to a lookup list that makes sense, and is also in a nice table format you can print out and stick on a wall rather than a hard to read text list.
