Unable to paste text in Windows RDP

THE ISSUE

For some unknown reason, I connect to a Windows 2012 R2 server via remote desktop. I copy text from my local computer and then paste want to paste it on the Windows Server. This did not work.

RDP stands for Remote Desktop Protocol and it’s a Windows tool to allow you remote access to a PC or server.

THE FIX

Apparently there is a RDP service called rdpclip.exe that is used as a clipboard for the Remote Desktop Protocol. To get the copy and paste working via RDP all you have to do it end this process and then start it up again. Here’s the instructions:

On the RDP server, open up task manager and look for a service on the list called rpdclip.exe

RDPclip executable

Right click on it and select End Process. The process should disappear

RDPclip executable end task

Then Click  File – New Task (Run)

RDPclip executable new task run

Type rdpclip

RDPclip executable new task

You should now be able to copy and paste via RDP
