Dozens of duplicated entries in System Tray Settings

Apparently using Remmina creates a new entry each time. Not sure how to prevent it.

Just noticed it, so I have yet to reboot & see if that resets it. Probably won't remember to check next time I reboot, since it doesn't happen too often.

You might try TeamViewer. It's free for personal use. You'll probably need to install it on both machines. It's also advisable to create a free account during the setup to save time when connecting.

Not quite the kind of solution I was hoping for. Even if it was exclusively for personal use (it is not), I wouldn't want it resolved that way.

I guess if I should have sufficient time one day I'll tinker with whatever other rdp clients are available to see if I can find another. In which case I imagine I'll have to find & nuke wherever the system tray applet keeps its config to remove all the zombie remmina entries.
