Was working perfect; remote desktop of laptop filled entire screen of workstation's 2nd monitor. But now it's just a scrolling window that fills only 2/3.

Workstation: 2013 DELL OPTIPLEX 9010 Windows-7 Pro with (2) Samsung SyncMaster SA850T 27" monitors: #1 at 2560 x 1440 vertical, and #2 at 1440 x 2560 horizontal (the one for the remote desktop session to laptop)

Laptop: 2013 DELL Precision M4800 with Win-7 Pro.

I've tried


Wow, I solved it while writing this question...

SOLUTION: Edit .rdp REMOTE DESKTOP config file at workstation with changes:

Display tab: Large, uncheck "Use all..", Colors Highest Experience tab: LAN General tab: SAVE Hit Connect button

2nd monitor now shows remote desktop session at 2560 x 1440. Ha cha!!

NOTE: Laptop local resolution was 1600 x 900.
