Can’t Minimise a Full Screen Remote Desktop Connection

Ever get stuck in a full-screen RDP session where the little yellow bar isn’t pinned and just won’t slide down?

Control + Alt + Break will restore the window.

  1. Years later and it is still good advice. Thanks.

  2. To fix:

    Go to Control Panel,
    System,
    Advanced System Settings,
    (Performance) Settings.
    Click the Custom button, then tick the 2nd option from the top. I was immediately able to minimize RDP windows.

  3. @Aiman, you don't say whether to do this on the local or remote system?

  4. Thanks Aiman
    I checked every option and found out that
    "give an animation effect on minimize or maximize window" option affects this on CLIENT(local) computer
    so that is 6th checkbox from bottom
