In this article, I will discuss enabling multiple TS sessions on Windows 10.
Enabling Multiple RDP Sessions on Windows 10 Pro
To enable multiple RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) sessions on Windows 10 Pro, follow these steps:
1. Open the Registry Editor by pressing the Windows key + R, typing “regedit” and pressing Enter.
2. Navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server.
3. Right-click on the “Terminal Server” key and select “New” > “DWORD (32-bit) Value”.
4. Name the new value “fSingleSessionPerUser” and set its value data to “0”.
5. Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
After following these steps, you should be able to establish multiple RDP sessions on your Windows 10 Pro operating system. This can be useful if you need to access your computer remotely from different devices or if you want to allow multiple users to connect to your system simultaneously.
Please note that modifying the Windows Registry can be risky, and it is recommended to create a backup before making any changes. Additionally, enabling multiple RDP sessions may violate the terms of service for Windows 10 Pro, so use this information responsibly and in accordance with applicable laws and licenses.
If you encounter any issues or need further assistance, it is recommended to consult official Microsoft documentation or seek help from the Windows community on platforms such as Reddit or GitHub.
Remember to always prioritize the security of your computer by keeping your operating system and antivirus software up to date. Regularly installing patches and updates from Windows Update or your software repository can help protect your system from potential security vulnerabilities.
Additionally, be cautious when allowing remote access to your computer and ensure that you have strong passwords in place for all user accounts. It is also advised to enable firewall rules and configure your network settings to protect your privacy and prevent unauthorized access.
By enabling multiple RDP sessions on Windows 10 Pro, you can enhance your remote desktop experience and make your computer more accessible for multiple users or devices.
Modifying Termsrv.dll for Multiple Remote Desktop Sessions
To enable multiple TS sessions on Windows 10, you can modify the Termsrv.dll file. Follow these direct instructions:
1. First, make sure you have administrative privileges on your computer.
2. Open File Explorer and navigate to the “System32” folder, usually located at “C:\Windows\System32”.
3. Locate the Termsrv.dll file in the System32 folder and make a backup copy of it. This is important in case anything goes wrong during the modification.
4. Download a modified version of the Termsrv.dll file from a trusted source. You can find these modified files on various websites or forums, but exercise caution and download from a reliable source to avoid potentially unwanted programs or malware.
5. Once you have downloaded the modified Termsrv.dll file, replace the original file in the System32 folder with the new one. You may need to grant administrator permission to make the changes.
6. After replacing the file, open the Command Prompt as an administrator. You can do this by right-clicking on the Start button and selecting “Command Prompt (Admin)”.
7. In the Command Prompt, type the following command to restart the Remote Desktop Services:
net stop termservice & net start termservice
8. Once the services have restarted, you should be able to open multiple remote desktop sessions on your Windows 10 computer.
Remember to exercise caution when modifying system files, as any changes made can have unintended consequences. Make sure to create a backup of the original file and download modified files from trusted sources.
If you encounter any issues or want to revert back to the original Termsrv.dll file, simply replace the modified file with the backup you created.
