Disconnect a User from a Session

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

You can disconnect a user from a session in Remote Desktop Services Manager by using the Disconnect action.

To disconnect a user from a session
  1. In Remote Desktop Services Manager, in the left pane, click the Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server on which the user session is running.

  2. To disconnect the user from the session, do either of the following:

    • On the Users tab, right-click the user session, and then click Disconnect.

    • On the Sessions tab, right-click the user session, and then click Disconnect.

  3. Click OK to disconnect the user from the session.

Additional considerations

  • You can always disconnect from your own sessions if you are logged on with the same user account.

  • To disconnect another user from a session, you must have Full Control permission or Disconnect special access permission.

  • All processes running in the session, including applications, will continue to run even after you disconnect the session.

  • You can use the tsdiscon command-line tool to disconnect a user from a session.
