Hi Ronnie,


That certainly is possible, for example you could give the "My
Computer"-icon a different name, for example "%username% on
%computername" so you can even see on which server someone is connected.


You can do this in the registry under:


Just edit  the "Localized String" value to ""%USERNAME% on

Ensure you have a backup of course..

Is there any way of placing a the %username% variable on the users
desktop so that is recognisable when a remote session desktop session is
initiated I would see who is actually logged on.
