There is a fairly new and different version of RDP (If you did an upgrade, service pack or update change in the process)  You can adjust your RDP options by using the "Options" button on the initial RDP applet or by right clicking on the Saved RDP configuration and selecting "Edit".  You will find the configuration for that under the "Local Resources" tab > Keyboard section.  You may try the two dif options.... In Full Screen Mode or simply On Remote Computer
