Image of the Shortcut (.url) on the desktop gets changed when using Remote Desktop
Consider the following scenario:
- You log in to a Windows 2008 Server using Remote Desktop.
- You are using a roaming profile.
- Icons are viewed as Large or Middle size icons (shortcut (.url)) on desktop.
- You have changed an Icon image to be different than its default icon.
In this scenario when you use remote desktop you notice that the icon that is displayed for Internet shortcut files changes to the default system icon.
