Solarwinds Take Control

Allow setting "Always start sessions in X tab" from the Console

As of version 7.00.00, with the removal of the General tab, sessions start in the Remote Desktop tab instead.

By default, we wish to start in a tab that does not automatically result in sharing remote desktop control with the client (such as when logging into the wrong machine by mistake). Although it is possible to set a different tab as the default, this must be done via the session window/viewer.

Please allow us to set this setting from the Console itself (as opposed to needing to launch a session) and also allow us to set it either globally or per Technician via the Admin Area - as, even with the setting added to the Console's options, this forces us to perform additional setup per console whenever we add a new technician or when a technician switches workstations.
