Another way that you can optimize Remote Desktop Connection is to prevent wallpaper on the remote computer from being displayed on the local computer. You can do this by editing the Local Computer Policy on the Remote Desktop host computer.

Open the Group Policy Editor. Navigate to the following: Computer Configuration| Administrative Templates| Windows Components| Terminal Services. In the Details pane, double click Enforce Removal of Remote Desktop Wallpaper, select Enable, and click OK. The desktop wallpaper configured on the remote computer will no longer be displayed on your computer when you establish a Remote Desktop Connection.
