RDP Changes Display Settings of Console Session in Windows 7
Posted on 2010-01-06
I have (4) monitors, soon to be (5), on a Windows 7 x64 workstation. The monitors reside on two separate Nvidia graphic cards, and soon a third will be added to the PC for the fifth monitor.
(3) of the monitors (and the soon to be added) are 24" monitors and the other (1) is a 42" monitor.
I have the 42" monitor mirrored with one of the 24" monitors, as the 42" is wall mounted. This comprises the windows monitor identity of 3/4.
Currently the orientation is (with X being 5 shortly, but currently unused):
After a remote desktop session into this workstation, the orientation after logging back in locally is:
and obviously I don't know where it'd put X (either to the left of 3/4 or to the right of 1).
I'm curious as to why the display settings are changing after a RDP session, and how to fix it; I'm having to change the orientation back multiple times a day.
Also, curiously, it changes the resolution of display 2 out of its native resolution of 1920 x 1200 to 1920 x 1080.
