I use remote desktop a lot to access client systems. The annoying thing is that it only seems to save 10 IP addresses which makes me constantly type in addresses and user IDs. Is there any to increase it over 10?

Hello and thank you for contacting JustAnswer, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you today.

What version of Windows are you using?

Ask Your Own Software Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Windows 7
Software technician: John Lohr, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

Please do the following for me:

  1. Right click the start button and select "Properties"
  2. Select the "Start Menu" tab at the top
  3. Click "Customize"
  4. Increase the value of the "Jump Lists" option at the bottom
  5. Press "Ok"

Let me know if this works for you

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I see it, but both jump lists and recent programs are disabled. Can't change the values.
Software technician: John Lohr, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

Hit "Use Default Settings" and see if that allows you to change the value

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Nope, but I had to go through all the settings and restore to what I had!

Are you not the Administrator of your computer?

Ask Your Own Software Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I am admin of this computer. I am also the domain admin but with a different ID/PW.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
All the other Windows 7 machines can change that setting.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Also, my setting defaults to zero. The others come up with settings of 10.
Software technician: John Lohr, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

Do you have any other settings that would be in control of that causing conflict?

Ask Your Own Software Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No idea. Never even heard of jump lists until today.
Software technician: John Lohr, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

Does it let you change the option on your other account?

Ask Your Own Software Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I can change it on the other Windows 7 computers in the office.
Software technician: John Lohr, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

What about this computer with another account signed in?

Ask Your Own Software Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Okay, figured it out. Thanks anyway.
Software technician: John Lohr, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

What was it?

Ask Your Own Software Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Setting under privacy on start menu tab. boxes have to be checked.
Software technician: John Lohr, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

Great, so you changed the Jump list settings and can store more IP's now?

Ask Your Own Software Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No, I can't. I can just change that setting and I changed it to 20 and it still only stores 10 settings. I rebooted the machine and it makes no difference!
Software technician: John Lohr, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

Being that it did not work, you may want to look into 3rd party remote access software such as TeamViewer

Ask Your Own Software Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I've used that and it's not right for what I want. I merely want to be able to store more than 10 entries in the RDP window.
Software technician: John Lohr, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 1 year ago

Being that the changing the jump list value didn't work, it appears to not be possible to store more than 10 entries
