There is a large border around the display in remote desktop web connection. This border is not present in standard remote desktop connection. Is there any way to fix this? It takes up 50% of the screen!

    I think you may be referring to the resolution setting in your remote desktop client. The server is set to a predefined resolution. If you are the admin you can change it.

    If you are referring to the resolution that you select after the client launches it makes no difference. 1024x768, full screen etc. If there is something that can be changed on the server side where would you change it? The desktop video settings?

    Changing the resolution on the host has no effect.

    After 2-1/2 hours with MS support it was determined that it is an issue that effects the wide-screen lcd monitors only. The wide screen Dell D800 was the only unit in our shop that had this problem.
