    Seems to depend on where you opened the RDP screen. I have RDP shortcut pinned on taskbar. In RDP connection just drag the mouse to the lower left corner and an icon of start screen will appear. This doesnt seem to work if you open the RDP connection from the start screen, but then again, you can just minimize the RDP window.
