What is RDP file?

An .RDP extension stands for Remote Desktop Protocol that is developed by Microsoft, and the protocol is used to connect the server-client computer systems over the network. The RDP file supported in text format contains connection oriented configuration parameters, such as server address, port number, user name, password, domain name, and other parameters. The RDP configuration parameters are saved in the Remote Desktop configuration file, which can be accessed by Microsoft’s Remote Desktop service and applications. Further, as the Remote Desktop configuration file is saved in the text format, the file can be edited using any of the existing text editors.

Programs that support RDP file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the RDP file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the RDP file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the RDP file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the RDP file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the RDP file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the RDP file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
