How to Record Remote Desktop Computer

Do you use Remote Desktop Connection in Windows to connect to a remote computer? If you use Remote Desktop Connection, you can easily connect to a remote computer. It's totally free and really convenient too, however, you can run into trouble when you record the remote screen with Remote Desktop Connection.

When you close the Remote Desktop connection whilst you're recording the remote screen, the recording itself will automatically stop and the unfortunate result of that is that you can end up losing your video file. That's because when you do so, Windows considers what you've done as having logged out and so it deems it necessary to log out and cease operation.

The good news is that there is a way to maintain recording, even when the connection to the remote desktop has been severed. That way is to use either Anydesk or TeamViewer, which allows users to control the remote computer in a couple of simple steps. Use this handy method during your screen recording and you'll never have to worry about having to re-record your videos after having lost them.
