I tried to move (actually copy) the link for "remote desktop" from
the Start>Accessories>Communications area to my desktop and now
there's nothing showing up under "Communications" to allow me to setup
another "remote desktop" session.
While trying to move the remote desktop icon back, I accidentally
deleted it. How do I get remote desktop to show up back under
communications again? Thanks!

Right click on your Start button and select "Explore All Users"
from the drop down menu.
Click on Programs.
Click on Accessories.
Click on Communications.
In the right hand pane, right click and select New -> Shortcut
from the menu.
In the box that pops up, enter the following as the location:
%SystemRoot%\System32\mstsc.exe
Click Next.
Enter "Remote Desktop Connection" as the name of your new
shortcut.
Click the Finish button.

Post back if you have any problems creating this new shortcut.
