Set rules for remote control of Remote Desktop Services user sessions

If you enable this policy setting, administrators can interact with a user's Remote Desktop Services session based on the option selected. Select the desired level of control and permission from the options list:

1. No remote control allowed: Disallows an administrator to use remote control or view a remote user session.
2. Full Control with user's permission: Allows the administrator to interact with the session, with the user's consent.
3. Full Control without user's permission: Allows the administrator to interact with the session, without the user's consent.
4. View Session with user's permission: Allows the administrator to watch the session of a remote user with the user's consent.
5. View Session without user's permission: Allows the administrator to watch the session of a remote user without the user's consent.

If you disable this policy setting, administrators can interact with a user's Remote Desktop Services session, with the user's consent.
