Undock session resolution set to work area screen

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

When I RDP to a server, the session runs as an embedded session. Sometimes, I need to undock the session to another monitor and compare 2 sessions on 2 separate monitors.

When an embedded session is undocked, it retains the resolution and that's normal. However, there's a lot of gray area space padding that is unused. I would like it so that when an embedded session is undocked, it will readjust the resolution and maximize to fit on the monitor (Work Area Screen). This can be fixed easily by right clicking on the title bar and select "Reconnect", however I don't want to do this manually every time. Is it possible to automate this process?

Hello,

In the properties of your RDP session, in the Display tab, could try to select Smart Reconnect in the screen sizing mode field to see if that help

Thanks Jeff. I've tried that in the past and always found it to be buggy and impacts performance. Tried it just now and looks to be OK.

Previously, I was using Smart Sizing. Is there any major difference between the 2?

Hello,

Smart Sizing will stretch the remote display to fit in the tab.

Smart reconnect will reconnect the session when the window size changes.

This is the difference between the 2 options.
