How to Log Off a Hung Console Session from an RDP Session

  1. From the Start menu, select Programs, Administrative Tools, then Computer Management to start the Computer Management snap-in.
  2. Right-click the root of the tree (Computer Management), and select Properties from the context menu.
  3. Select the Advanced tab.
  4. Click the Startup and Recovery button.
  5. Click the Shut Down button. (Don't worry. You won’t shut anything down at this point.)
  6. From the dialog box, you can select to shut down, reboot, log off, or power down (if supported). You can also choose how to handle hung applications.
  7. Make your selections, and click OK.

If you select Log off Current User from a terminal services session, the application logs off the user at the console, not your session, so choose this option with care.
