How to removing Entries in the Windows Remote Desktop Connection Client

To remove entries from the Remote Desktop Connection Computer box in the Windows Remote Desktop Connection client, start Registry Editor, and then click the following registry key:

Removing Entries in the Mac Remote Desktop Connection Client,  To remove entries from the Remote Desktop Connection Computer box in the Mac Remote Desktop Connection client, delete the Users:Username:Library:Preferences:Microsoft:RDC Client:Recent Servers file.

Note :- The list of all destination connections (including previous connections) are stored in an MRUnumber value in the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER –> Software –> Microsoft –> Terminal Server Client –> Default

Every new connection is given the value of MRU0, and the other values are then sequentially moved down in number. The MRU value can contain a Fully Qualified Domain Name or an IP address of the computer to which you connect.

For example:
MRU0 REG_SZ 192.168.16.60
MRU1 REG_SZ computer.domain.com
