Fix RDP Intermittently Freezing

Fix RDP Intermittently Freezing

Are you working from home but your RDP session on Windows 10 keeps intermittently freezing and it’s annoying the hell out of you? I went through the same thing and had a really hard time searching for a solution. 

The RDP fix below should be done on the client machine where you are running RDP, not the remote machine that you are connecting to: 

  1. Tap the Windows Key to bring up start menu > type “regedit” > click Registry Editor
  2. Browse to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software > Policies > Microsoft > Windows NT > Terminal Services > Client
  3. Right click “client” > New > DWord (32-bit) Value
  4. Name: fClientDisableUDPValue: 1 Base: Hexadecimal 
  5. Reboot your machine

That’s it, go ahead and test RDP, you should no longer experience random RDP freezing.

I found the solution above in this message board post by stevek_mcc.
