How to remove a Remote Desktop Service collection on Windows Server


Remote Desktop Services (RDS) previously referred to as Terminal Server is a feature that you can use to connect to devices remotely. RDS Collections are a dynamic pool of RDS session hosts. These hosts can be added or removed from the pool. These collections are a group of Remote Desktop Session Host servers with a shared set of RemoteApps, session host, or VDI desktops that can be published to users. A collection can contain either remote desktops or RemoteApps, not both at the same time. Here are some related guides: How to setup and configure Remote Desktop Services via Standard Deployment on Windows Server, How to allow RDP access for non-administrators on a Domain Controller, How to Install, Publish, Update and Uninstall Remote Desktop Web Client, and How to setup and configure Remote Desktop Services via Standard Deployment on Windows Server.

In subsequent guides, I will be showing you how to create a collection in RDS. Please see this guide on Publish Remote Desktop Web Client: How to install HTML 5 Web Client for Microsoft RDS Server.

If you wish to remove a collection in RDS, navigate to the collection tab shown in the image below. All you need to do is to right-click on the collection you want to remove and click “Remove Collections”.


You will be asked to confirm if you are sure you want to remove it- Click on Yes as shown below to remove the collection.


Once you proceed the collection will be removed. As you can see, there is no more collection. On how to create a new collection, please stay glued!
