When I connect using Teamviewer, it starts with a scaling, and some arbitrary resolution. I always end-up changing it to Full Screen, 1366x768 (the resolution of my laptop), and full-screen.

Is there a setting that will make Teamviewer always start in this configuration, so I don't have to do it manually every time?

why not saving settings -->export and import whenever u use it? – BlueBerry - Vignesh4303 Aug 31 '13 at 10:48
What is that? I couldn't find an entry called "saving settings" anywhere in the menus. – sashoalm Sep 1 '13 at 20:06

You can add the remote PC to the Computers&Contacts list and set it to fullscreen on connect in the properties (advanced). You can also change the scaling or resolution that way.

It seems I need to create an account and give an email to be able to do so, though. I assume there's no way it could be avoided? – sashoalm Sep 6 '13 at 9:23
OK, I see they accept mailinator accounts. – sashoalm Sep 6 '13 at 9:29

I am using Teamviewer 11.0.53254. I had the same problem. I tried Maurice Gilden's answer and I still couldn't get it full screen.

I then set the remote computer's screen to maximum resolution and changed my monitor to the same resolution and then I got full screen.

From your Tablet or other remote controler, go directly to configuration, then open Screen Resolution, set up as no change and that is it!
