Hide Connection bar

Copper Contributor

Hello AVD family,


Is there a way to hide the connection bar in the Windows RD client? A cmd line, powershell or a registery solution is preferable? 

The goal is to prevent users from resizing or minimizing the session desktop which is enabled by default during Remote desktop connection. Force users to sign out or "disconnect" from the start menu only. 

Any advice appreciated

We too would like this option, its seems crazy you cant remove this connection bar, we are new to AVD and have users close down the session because they click on the X, we have hidden it but it still pops up at the most inconvenient time.


Other solutions like Vmware Horizon and Citrix allow you to do this programatically.
