With Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012, Microsoft has introduced a new user interface.

When connected remotely using remote desktop, this new UI can be difficult to use (especially to display the charm bar has this may interfere with your local Windows 8 client).

This quick menu appears only if your remote desktop is displayed in full screen.
