When I copied remote desktop to my desktop I moved it instead of coping it.
I ended up deleting and emptying out my Recycle bin. Is there a way to restore the link???

You mean you dragged it and dropped the Remote Desktop Connection shortcut?

Most all that stuff offered in the Start menu (programs, etc.) is all in some folder somewhere that you can navigate to and manipulate (cut, copy, paste, etc.).

What you are offered from the Start menu is a combination of defaults and stuff that belongs to the user.

When I login, my RDC is under Start, Programs, Accessories.

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories

The RDC belongs to all users.

Create the missing Remote Desktop Connection shortcut in that folder and point the Target to the actual program here:
