When you as a remote user log on to a remote session by using Remote Desktop, the icons and the taskbar on the remote computer still reflect your settings even after you log off and a local user logs on.
This behavior can occur because the remote session saves the desktop icons and taskbar positions in the current user profile.
To work around this issue, after a remote user logs off, the local user must resize or rearrange the desktop icons and taskbar settings to restore them to their previous positions.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
