How to enable Remote Desktop for non-admin?


After hearing from many that Power Users are still admin, I have converted myself to a regular user.  Most apps continue to work properly.  Remote Desktop stops working.  To be specific, from the non-admin box, I can remote desktop to another machine, but not vice versa. 

After fiddling with some settings, I discovered that regulars users are not enabled to remote desktop by default.  After adding myself as a Remote User in the System Properties, I can start a Remote Desktop session to my box again.
