Remote Desktop Services, previously known as Terminal Services, is a component of the Windows operating system (OS) that allows users to access data and applications on another computer over a network connection. Accessing the entire desktop of a remote computer is also an option of Remote Desktop Services. If you don't want users remotely shutting down the server they are accessing, you can disable the shutdown option through the group policies of the server. You must be an administrator on the server to apply such changes.
