Fixing the Remote Desktop Clipboard

Most remote desktop power users have noticed that sometimes the clipboard sharing feature stops working. There's an easy workaround:

  1. On the remote machine, run Task Manager
  2. Kill the "rdpclip.exe" process
  3. Restart the process by going to Start, Run and typing "rdpclip"

Good as new! I'm not sure why the clipboard sync issues occur in the first place, and they can often return, occasionally forcing you to repeat this process.

Please wait ...
