Trouble with Remote Desktop desktop size

I just started working with a Virtual Private Server by way of Remote Desktop but the screen sizes don't match, if you will.

I mean that I am constantly using the scroll bar just to see various parts of the scren.

I tried to change the Display Properties on Settings page of the VPS but it's locked at 1600 by 1050.

Any suggestion about what I can do?  I am really unproductive since I can not see the whole screen at once.

thanks,

Have you defined any group policy objects that dictate the size of the screen?  In Terminal Services client configuration, did you set it to allow the client settings or did you set it to ignore?

On my ISP, the VPS is set to 1600 X 1050 but it's locked and will not let me change it!  So I'm stuck on the server end.

Is there a way for me to adjust the Remote Desktop on the client end to use a larger display area?

thanks,
NBW

The client would also have to support a larger area.  If the workstation is only able to support 1024x768, then that would be the largest that it can display for a remote desktop window.  

You might want to look into using VNC instead of remote desktop.  There are versions of it that will allow for screen scaling.  There would be a degradation in the screen quality, but you wouldn't have to scroll to see parts of the screen.

Both systems support a larger area.  

My client can support much finer resolution than even 1600 X 1050.

Actually, I have Tight VNC if my memory serves me correctly.

Thanks, I'll look for it.
