Setting up the remote context

In order to run an automation with the Remote Desktop minimized, follow these steps:

Note: These steps must be done on the machine that runs the Remote Desktop, not the Remote Desktop itself.

Note: All instances of Remote Desktop must be closed.

1) In the Windows search bar, type "run"(or Windows Key + R) and the following window should pop up:

In it, type "regedit" and press Ok.

2) In the Registry Editor's search bar, type: "Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client" and press Enter.

3) In the folder that you have just opened, right click -> select "New" -> select "DWORD (32-bit) Value"

Change the name of the newly created file to "RemoteDesktop_SuppressWhenMinimized"

4) Open the file and in the "Value data" field, put 2 (it's 0 by default).

Click "OK" to save

5) Restart the PC.
