Fix: Your Remote Desktop Services Session Has Ended - Windows

You may receive an error in Windows Remote Desktop while either trying to remote desktop to another machine or while currently remoted into a machine.


Your Remote Desktop Services session has ended.

Another user connected to the remote computer, so your connection was lost. Try connecting again, or contact your network administrator or technical support group.


This prompt means either someone else has forcefully knocked you out of your remote session (Windows remote session have a 1 or 2 person maximum logged in limit) or you mistakenly remoted twice into the same computer and forcefully closed your original remote session.

If you continue to encounter this error, you can check to see who is attempting to login and override your remote session in the remote machines using a command line command.


1. Type the following command into Windows Command Prompt


2. This outputs the current logged in users.


You can also search event viewer to find out the last logged in user. Open Event Viewer (Start -> type Event Viewer). Expand Windows Logs -> Security and search for Event ID 4624. This will display all login events on the machine. You can identify who is logging (Windows user ID) in around the time you are being kicked out.
