With the AdminTool, the Administrator can choose between 4 display modes when he assigns applications: The Microsoft Remote Desktop, The Remote Taskbar, The Floating Panel or The Application Panel. The Remote Taskbar, Floating and Application Panels are available for any connection method.
When you assign applications to an user, you can enable the RDPlus remote taskbar. The RDPlus Taskbar is extremely useful when a session is run with the Seamless RDPlus connection program. The user can launch remote applications with one click on the RDPlus taskbar and still have the full local Desktop available. You can assign the Remote Taskbar to your users or groups by double-clicking on it or by selecting it, then clicking on the “Assign Application” tile:
The Administrator can easily decide what will be the default Remote Desktop theme the user will see when opening a session. Select the RDPlus Remote Taskbar, then click on “Edit Application”:

Because these RDPlus Desktops are full screen desktops, the user’s display is entirely filled when a session is opened from dedicated thin-clients, any RDP based client, or accessed from a web page or RDPlus Remote Desktop clients.
There are benefits over a standard Remote Desktop. It enhances the server security (no START button neither full control of the Desktop).
Standard Microsoft Remote Desktop
In order to change the Desktop themes, you will have to assign the RDPlus Remote Taskbar and choose between the 3 suggested themes:
