Remote desktop not sharing clipboard information

Usually when I set up a remote desktop connection I was able to share clipboard information between the server and the client, but for some reason it didn’t work anymore.
After some search I found out that it has something to do with ‘rdpclip.exe’. Some websites suggested to restart this process, but the problem was ‘rdpclip.exe’ wasn’t even showing up in my process list.
The trick is to add this executable to your startup folder in the start menu. The file ‘rdpclip.exe’ is located in your System32 directory, e.g.: C:WindowsSystem32rdpclip.exe. Now you’re able to use the clipboard again with remote desktop sessions. 🙂
