your display settings.  make sure that your RDP session is set to either full screen or at minimum, the same resolution as  your local desktop environment.

exactly!  which is why you should ensure that your RDP session is configured to run in Full Screen mode (which makes your local resolution a moot point) or your RDP session is configured with the same resolution as your local machine, thus nullifying any change in resolution when you close your RDP session.

Give that a try and let me know how it works out for you!
