RDP stands for Remote Desktop Protocol. It was developed by Microsoft to provide users a graphical interface to another computer. With RDP, you can access your computer from any location as long as you have a steady Internet connection. You can even carry your sound remotely if you wish. If you don't want the sound, you can disable the RDP audio driver.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open the Start menu and select "All Programs." Click "Accessories" and then select "Communications." Select "Remote Desktop Connection." Please note that you will only find this option if you have a existing remote desktop connection.

  2. 2

    Select the tab labelled "Local Resources."

  3. 3

    Click "Settings." You will find this right below "Remote Audio."

  4. 4

    Select the option "Do not play" under the subheading "Remote audio playback."

  5. 5

    Click "Apply" and select "OK."
