I use Remote Desktop on Windows 7 pretty often, but I find it frustrating that RD defaults to show new RD windows on my default monitor (which is a laptop). I'd prefer to have RD show new windows on my 2nd monitor. I can't find a setting that allows me to do set this default behavior. The steps that I usually end up doing is:
- Start up Remote Desktop
- Connect to a machine
- Un-Maximize the window size so I can drag it to my 2nd monitor
- Cancel out of logging in to the remote machine
- On the Remote Desktop connect window, set my window display size to Full Size
- Connect to the remote machine (which now displays on my 2nd monitor)
A lot of steps that I find annoying to do, especially when I'm connecting to different machines and really don't want to run through all these steps over and over.
I'm assuming there has to be a default setting that I'm missing. I'd appreciate any help with this (hopefully) obvious question.
