Remoting to domain controllers and the Win 7 taskbar and remote desktop.

I use the remote desktop to remote into our servers, so I pinned it to the taskbar. Problem was going to another server, because when I clicked the icon on the taskbar it opened up the remote desktop of the server I already logged into.

Under XP you'd just click on the icon and it would keep opening a new instance. Very frustrating because I wanted to work on two servers at once. I started thinking I'd have to look into some cool shareware or open source project.

Took me awhile, but if you shift+click an item on the taskbar that already is open, a new instance will be opened. Yea!!:cool:
