In this Article we will learn about how to setup RemoteApps on Windows Server 2012
In short RemoteApps (Remote Desktop Connection) is feature that you can use to access programs and desktops (remote computers and virtual computers) made available to you by your workplace’s network administrator. When you’re at home, you can access all the programs and computers that you would normally need to be at work to use. With a connection, all of these resources are located in one easy-to-access folder on your computer. Using these resources is almost the same as if they were on your local network or on your computer.
