    Win 10 1903 RDP (Remote Desktop) not retaining window positions or task bar positions...


    Hello,


    I'm unable to figure this out after hours of searching and trying things so I'm hoping someone here can help.


    Recently my remote systems were updated to windows 10 1903 and since then every time I reconnect (hit the close button, re-establish a remote desktop session) all of my windows and task bar that I re-locate to my other monitors are all crammed back on the center monitor. I have three monitors. Note that this all worked fine before this update.


    Setup:

    Main computer:

    Win 10 (1807, 1903 now since I upgraded thinking it was a comparability issue)

    i7 8700k

    nvidia 1060


    Remote Computer 1:

    Windows 10 (1903)

    i7 4770

    intel integrated graphics


    Remote computer 2:

    Windows 10 (1903)

    xenon 14...

    AMD hd 400 or something (dell)


    Remote computer 3:

    Windows 10 (1903)

    i7 8700

    intel HD 600 integrated


    Things I've tried:

    - I upgraded my main PC to 1903 thinking maybe if I had it on the same version it might fix it. This resulted in my third monitor not receiving signal until I unplugged all of them, powered them all down, and plugged them in sequentially. Separate issue I suppose.
    - I updated the remote pc's with all the latest patches from windows. Checked graphics drivers are up to date.
    - I tested remoting in from two other computers on windows 10, one with two monitors, one with three, same issue.

    - I looked at the windows logs on the computers and there doesn't seem to be any error logs created by the remote connection event (like a graphics driver crash or similar)

    - I ran sfc and similar to check for corruption and nothing of note came up.



    Observations:

    - This seems similar to what happens when you clean install a graphics driver where it bumps from one monitor low res and back.

    - I am aware of the black screen issue with RDP and 1903. The fix is to use a default windows display adapter which only supports low res and one monitor so its kind of pointless to try that.

    - Given the range of hardware spanning 4 generations it seems unlikely to be a "old computer, not compatible" issue.



    Thanks for your time,

    "Reload"

    :)

  2. Explorer Navigation Bar Position

    Actually I'm referring to the "Favorites" listing positioned on the right side of the screen. Between it and the rest of the screen is positioned a vertical "bar" containing five choices (Favorites, Reading List, Books, History, Downloads). This "bar"
    was horizontal on previous revisions of the Windows (10) browser.

    All of my previous remarks pertain to this. I'm familiar with the Task Bar normally located at the bottom of the screen.

    Thank you.

    Remote Desktop (RDP) - No task bar on client PC.


    I have been using RDP for LAN and also over VPN for years - never had any great problems.

    NOW!
    On a PC that has been upgraded from Win7 to Win10 Pro I have having problems with my RDP, when I connect to the remote computer I can't see its Task Bar, I can only see the Task Bar of the computer I am connecting from.

    I have tried to connect to the same client with another Win10 machine and no problem with Task Bar, every thing normal.
    I have check the RDP settings and they are the same on both of the computers I was connecting from.

    As a temp measure on the client PC I have the Task Bar displayed on the right hand side instead of bottom, works but I would like things how they should be.

    Any help would be appreciated.
