  1. RDP Display resolution on remote machine


    I am running an up-to-date Windows 10 install on a high res dual 3820x 2160 monitor setup.

    When I log into [RDP] my clients Windows Server 2012v2 machine the icons on the desktop are HUGE. The program menus look sort of OK (I can work with them) but icons internal to the programs are tiny tiny. It won't let me change the resolution from a remote session.

    Is this a problem with my setup? If so please give any guidance. I've tried to muck around with the RDP settings and can't seem to get to anything that works.Or is this more likely problem with the specific program I am using not being able to use higher resolutions? If so I'll need to contact their support. [It's an industry specific program].
    I know I can just reduce the resolution on my laptop and external monitor to match the remote machine but that seems like a really clunky way to handle this. I use programs at my office that can take full advantage of this resolution.


    Thanks.

    :)

    Remote Desktop Options

    I have Windows 7 machine which is on 24/7 which I would like to remote into with security and ease kept in mind. What are your suggestions? Is RDP good enough?

    Remote Desktop Connection - poor resolution


    When I connect from my laptop to my desktop via Remote Desktop Connection client, the resolution becomes poor - the text is not smooth (the colors look OK).

    I went to Remote Desktop Connection/Options/Display, colors are set to Highest Quality, all seems to be set properly.

    This is not just limited to Win 10, the same happens when I connect from Win 7 machine.

    Any suggestions? Thank you.
