I have written a nonintrusive desktop applet that I use at work for connecting to a large number of servers via RDP (Remote Desktop) & VNC. The hosts can be broken up into logical groups. Everything is configured in a .ini file. In the default .ini file, the first 3 groups use RDP, and the last group, which is an automatic concatenation of the first 3, use UltraVNC Viewer (you can change this to any flavor of VNC). I have found this to be a big time saver and a way to save space on the desktop. The applet is almost completely transparent when not in use as to not clutter up the desktop.

Any comments or suggestions are welcome!

I love the idea and was going to make one for myself.

Unfortunately when I select a machine it does not launch my rdp session...

Also try setting Program to C:\WINDOWS\system32\mstsc.exe /v:_HOST_ under the [Groups].

I got around to fixing a nagging bug that several people PM'd me about. In the ini file, this now works correctly:

; x coord. of the window, default=515 (between the center & far right side)

TopWin_X=515

The binary is now built with AutoIt v 3.2.0.1.
