Enable Remote Desktop via registry

Ever configured and installed a PC or server in a remote location only to discover that you have forgotten to enable the "remote desktop" option? I have ...

Luckily, there is no need to jump into your car and drive over there. You can adjust it, like most things, with a simple registry key adjustment.

1. Open the registry editor
2. Connect to the remote computers with the "connect network registry" option
3. find the key fDenyTSConnections located in HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server
4. change value from 1 to 0

A reboot of the computer is not required.
