How can I view a 1080p RDP session in stretched fullscreen on a 2160p (UHD) display?
I am using high-DPI screens with a UHD native resolution.
I would like to have a full-screen remote desktop session. In Windows 10, the local resolution and DPI settings are applied remotely, which looks great. But this means all scaling happens on the remote end, and as far as RDP is concerned it's transmitting a 2160p image.
Unfortunately, transmitting a 2160p resolution over the network requires a high bandwidth, which means the entire experience is rather laggy. For example, manually forcing 1080p is much smoother. But forcing 1080p does not stretch locally and if I try to switch to 1080p fullscreen I end up with a centered viewport and a large black border:
Is there any way I can get it to stretch locally so that only 1080p is transmitted over the network but it looks like 200% DPI locally?
While I would prefer to use the native Windows RDP client, a third-party client is also acceptable if it solves this issue. Support for Remote Desktop Gateway is desired, but can be worked around if necessary.
