Enable Copy/Paste on remote machine

Hi Friends,

If you are not able to copy paste from remote machine.
Responsible process for this task is “rdpclip.exe”. You can directly start/restart this process if you are a advance user.


You can use following steps to do the same:

  1. Follow path
    “Start” > “All Programs” > “Accessories” > “Remote Desktop Connection”.
  2. Click “Options”, and then open the “Local Resources” tab available on the same window.
  3. Check the “Clipboard” option under “Local devices and resources”, and then click “Connect” to start your Remote Desktop Connection with the clipboard enabled.
  4. Copy/Paste should work now on your machine.

    Please let me know your Queries/thoughts as well. Thanks.
