Make local files available on RDP connection

If you would like to save files from SAP directly to your local computer follow these steps.


PC
On your local computer Press Windows+R and type MSTSC then press OK or Enter

Go to the Local Resources Tab and click More at the bottom.

Click OK then close the Remote Desktop Connection Window.

You can now connect to the RDP session for SAP and see your local computer under the This PC or  Network Tree options.

To get there connect to your RDP session and open anything that gives you the Save File Diolauge box. For example you could click the export PDF option then choose Save As and Choose a Different Folder to get the Diolauge box in the screenshot below.
Then Navigate to the folder you wish to save your files in. I chose my Downloads Folder
In this path it was This PC > C on WOLFFE (WOLFFE in this spot is the Name of My Computer)> Users > Wolffe (Here you would select whatever your username is) > Then I Right click on Downloads and Pin to Quick Access

This will allow me to have it show up without having to go through this path every time.

Now you can see I have 2 Downloads in my Quick Access Bar. The bottom one is the one I pinned there. The  URL bar at the top will have the path to my local file through tsclient. If you save the file there it will be available on your local computer.
