Poor Image and text quality in Terminal Service Session
Posted on 2006-04-28
I'm using remote desktop to connect to a 2003 server machine running Terminal Services. All windows fonts within the remote desktop session appear grainy. This includes the start menu, icon tags, etc. Changing the color depth, maximizing the experience tab, or using clear type fonts doesn't seem to make a difference. I can open the same Publisher file within remote desktop and on my local machine and see different results. When opened in Terminal Services the text appears grainy (almost like it's not using true-type fonts) and when opened on my local computer the text is crystal clear. I'm sure it has something to do with compression, or the way MS is optimizing Terminal Services, but at the expense of performance, is there any way to improve the quality? Or is there something else I can check?
