  1. Good advice, but its worth noting you can set a local policy to enable shadowing without user consent as well

    Under Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand Windows Components, and then click Remote Desktop Services. Under the Remote Desktop Session Host > Connections, right-click Sets rules for remote control of Remote Desktops Services user sessions
