Copy RDP Entry Name To Clipboard

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Hi,
I work with Azure VM's mostly. To get to the vm's, I use their public host name Example ServerNameA.southcentralus.cloudapp.azure.com. But if I am on the console of ServerNameA and want to get to the UNC of ServerNameB, I cannot use the public FQDN, I have to type \\ServerNameB. I use the server netbios names as my RDP entry names, so quickly copying that to clipboard would be useful. Also useful when I want to quickly grab a name to drop in an email. Our host names are complex so not the easiest to type out when I could just copy it. Ideally, I would right click on an entry, go to the clipboard sub menu, and there would be an option of "Entry Name" or something to that effect.

Currently I have to go to properties and grab it there.

Hello,

If you right-click on your RDP entry and select Clipboard -> Copy Host Name, is this what you are looking for?

No, I am looking to copy the entry name, the text in the left hand navigation tree.

Do you have a best guess when this feature will be coming?

I just opened a feature request similar before seeing this thread.

Cody we have noticed that the people with edit permissions can hit F2 on the sessions and copy the sessions name. I just wish the session name highlight and copy option was available with out having to give full session edit rights.

I've tried that, F2 is not reliable. When you click on an entry and hit F2, if you are connected to that entry, when the screen pane loads, it will boot you out of rename mode before you can copy the text. Also, there seems to be times where F2 will simply not put a selected entry into rename mode. If I click on it a few times, it will eventually go into rename mode. The idea here is to get an efficiency boost. Any solution that isn't reliable, isn't efficient.

Don't worry guys, it's already implemented internally smile
