Once a folder has been added (in this case, desktop), it will appear in the list of shared folders, as shown below. The minus (“-“) button in the lower left hand corner can be used to remove a folder you no longer want to be available for sharing.

Step 4: Log in to RDP, from within the remote session, navigate to “This PC” within the File Explorer. The drives that you have selected will appear under the “Redirected drives and folders” section.

Drag files to and from the drive like you would any other folder.
