Reset Windows Password: Remote Desktop event viewer

When using the Terminal Server Client (also known as Remote Desktop Connection) in Windows, various events related to the client are saved and can be viewed later using the Event Viewer. To view events related to the Terminal Server Client, open the Event Viewer, navigate to the "Applications and Services Logs" section, expand the "Microsoft" folder and select the "TerminalServices-ClientActiveXCore" log.

The Event Viewer is a tool in Windows that allows users to view and manage system and application logs. However, it can only be accessed after logging in to the account. Another issue is that events related to the Remote Desktop are scattered across different logs and not restricted to the "TerminalServices-ClientActiveXCore" log. 

This program feature overcomes both problems by gathering as many events related to RDP connections as possible, extracting additional data from the "TerminalServices-RemoteConnectionManager," "RemoteDesktopServices-RdpCoreTS," "TerminalServices-LocalSessionManager," "System," and "Security" logs.
