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.

as long as the resolution is the same it shouldn't matter.  i take it you're seeing differently?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

well its just when i remote into a machine with RDP that machine is fine, its when i close it my icon are all over the place , im guessing the resolution is changing when i close a session and it throwing my icons

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!
