    Use Remote Desktop to share 2 displays between 2 PC's on same desk?


    I'm trying to figure out a way for 2 PC's to share 2 Displays.

    I had thought that maybe there might be an HDMI switch or splitter I could configure and posted my question in the Graphics Cards forum here that is not getting any responses. But in my online searching I came across the mention of using Remote Desktop to have 2 PC's share 2 Displays so that either PC could have dual monitor or each have it own.

    I really don't have any experience with Remote Desktop. Is it even availiable in Windows 10 Home or do I need Pro?

    Anyone here ever done something like this before?

    :)

    Is it possible to limit Remote Desktop in Windows 10 to only use 2 out of 3 screens connected to a pc?

    Remote Desktop is to a Windows 2012 Server.

    Windows 10 - Remote Desktop Connection

    Hi Lorraine,

    I will certainly help you with the issue you are experiencing in adjusting the resolution on the remote desktop.

    This issue might occur due to, when you first connect, Remote Desktop attempts to size the screen according to its default setting. You can adjust this setting within the Remote Desktop client. Adjusting the screen size allows
    you to sculpt the desktop display size to better fit your computer's viewing area.

    Please follow below mentioned steps to fix the issue:

    Step 1: To change the size of the Remote Desktop window:



    • Open Remote Desktop Connection (RDC).

    • Click on the Options button located in the lower left-hand corner of the RDC window.

    • This will expand the RDC window to display 7 different option tabs.

    • Click on the Display tab.

    • In the display configuration section, slide the bar to the left or right to decrease or increase the size of the remote desktop session window.

    • Click the Connect button.

    Or

    Step 2:


    • Open the "Start" menu and type
      "mstsc" (in the search bar) and then press “Enter."

    • Click "Options”.

    • Click the "Display" tab.

    • Drag the slider bar left or right to
      reduce or enlarge the display resolution. The
      left-most
      position is the minimum resolution, while the right-most is a full-screen resolution.

    Please get back to us, if are still facing issue in adjusting the resolution on the remote desktop.

    Thank you.
