How to force login to remote desktop

"I am in the office. Now I need Remote Desktop access to my computer at home. I am the admin. The problem is that my 5-year-old daughter is playing a game on her (non-admin) account. I send a request message when I connect, but I find that my daughter rejects my request. Can I do something to control my computer without my daughter's request and get Remote Desktop force login ?"

3 ways to force remote desktop login

Many admin users may be confused about what they can do to control the remote PC without the request when the remote user is not as an admin. Actually, it’s not very hard. Here we summarize 3 ways to tell you how to force login to Remote Desktop. Before the operation, make sure you have already performed the port forwarding.

Way 1. Turn off fast user switching

It is said that the fast user switching will cause the prompt box to appear for the other user regardless of their group membership. Therefore, after turning off it, the message or the request won’t appear on the remote PC, and then you can control your remote PC as you want.

Step 1. Press "Win + R" and then type “gpedit.msc” in the dialog box, and then press the “Enter” key to open the Local Group Policy Editor.

Run Box Gpedit.msc

Step 2. Navigation:  Local computer policy > Computer configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Logon > Hide Entry Points for Fast User Switching

Hide Entry Points for Fast User Switching

Step 3. Double click on “ Hide Entry Points for Fast User Switching”, and then click on “Disabled”. Click on “OK”.

Note: If you want to switch the user account to your own on the remote PC, just press CTRL + ALT + Ending. (Some keyboard shortcuts in Remote Desktop is different from the desktop) .

Way 2. Run box to type the command

In this way, we can access the remote PC directly as the admin, and there won’t be any request messages to the non-admin users.

Step 1. Press "Win + R" to invoke the dialog box.

Run Dialog Box

Step 2. Enter mstsc /console /v:servername or ip address of remote computer /admin, such as mstsc /console /v: /admin.

Run  Console Admin

Step 3. Press the “Enter” key and then the connections will be established without the request.

Way 3. Use Local Group Policy Editor

After enabling the policy “Set rules for Set rules for Remote Desktop Services user sessions” and choosing “View Sessions without the user sessions”, then the non-admin user won’t get the message to allow or disallow. Then you can get the Remote Desktop Connection to the remote PC.

Step 1. Open gpedit.msc as admin on the remote host.

Run Box Gpedit.msc

Step 2. Navigation:

Computer Configuration >> Administrative Templates >> Windows Components >> Remote Desktop Services >> Remote Desktop Session Host >> Connections>> Set rules for Remote Desktop Services user sessions

Set Rules for Remote Control

Step 3. Double click on the option and then tick “Enabled”, click on “OK”. Under “Options”, choose “View Sessions without the user sessions”.

Enable Set Rules for Remote Control

Step 4. Reboot the host PC and then connect.
