Before you connect, there should be an Options >> button.  Click it, then click Display, and set whatever you'd like.

You have to choose the size before you connect.
Once connected it won't resize.
When you start remote desktop,
Before you connect, there should be an Options >> button.
Click it, then click Display, and set whatever you'd like. (including full screen)

The Server window is fine it is the PC on the network that I am connecting to that is the problem, how do I resize the client PC that I am connected through terminal services, I can neither resize the window or drag it to resize it.

You can resize the PC screen by right clicking on the desktop, and using Display settings to resize your screen resolution.  You can still resize the server screen to fit on your client screen using the instructions I gave.   This may not be a satisfactory answer for you, so I suggest you use Request Attention to bring it back to the attention of other experts.

Before you start MSTSC, edit your .RDP file (e.g. Default.RDP, usually in My Documents), include the line:
   smart sizing:i:1
Save that and start MSTSC. On the  Options, the Display tab allows you to choose the size of the remote desktop - Full Screen is a good setting.

That should give you a fullscreen session with the remote screen scaled to fit.

Hello, I think I have confused the situation, the way we are accessing the client computers is through terminal services, through manage client computers, right click, access through terminal services & a session is set up, I used both kevin_u: & ET0000: advice & connected through RDP & it works fine now, thank s for your help.
