    Ok I have a question....if I have an error pop up on my local computer. Is there a way using Windows Remote Desktop that I can see those popped up errors. I know I could check event viewer but some errors have generic errors while the error on the screen i.e. Windows Back throws a "media not ready" error which I can see locally. How would someone with RDP see that exact error? I know VNC I can see the desktop as the user sees it but remote desktop doesn't seem to be able.....any suggestions

    When you login with Remote Desktop, it logs off the current user on that computer and you login with a fresh desktop again. VNC would be the only way to see the current desktop of the user.
