Notes about the RDP file extension:
To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened
" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?
" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps"
and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.
The RDP file type is primarily associated with 'Remote Desktop Connection' by Microsoft Corporation. An .RDP file contains all of the information for a connection to a terminal server, including the options settings that were configured when the file was saved.
