Remote applications in RDS

Another part of the RDS story is the ability to provide remote access to individual applications rather than serving up a whole desktop. This is called RD RemoteApp and it simply provides a shortcut to an individual application running either on a virtual or remote session desktop. I have seen this used for legacy applications that won't run on the latest versions of Windows and to provide access to secure applications, as it's a simple matter to prevent cut and paste or any sharing of data between a remote application, and the local device it's executing on. RD RemoteApps work by publishing only the specified applications installed on our RD Session Hosts or VDI VMs.
