When someone sends me a remote assistance request and I connect to their machine it doesn't appear that there is a way to make the window full screen.

Does anyone have way to accomplish this?

Can you try CTRL+ALT+BREAK (Switch the client computer between a window and a full screen)

If it doesn't work, I'm not sure there is a way to do that.

This does indeed make it full screen but unfortunately the person I am assisting and myself both have dual monitors and it will full screen his two monitors on a single monitor of mine instead of full screening his two monitors across my two monitors. – Chris Magnuson Jul 26 '10 at 18:11
Do you have an extended or splitted monitor. – r0ca Jul 26 '10 at 18:13
In Windows 7 there is a drop down next to Multiple Displays: that has the options "Extend these displays", "Duplicate these displays", "Show desktop only on 1", "Show desktop only on 2". I have it set to "Extend these displays". PS I opened an additional question for the specific multimonitor scenario since you correctly answered the question that I had asked here. – Chris Magnuson Jul 26 '10 at 18:27
