Maybe they changes the solution in the RDP Client? You can't change the RES in your remote session, but you can configure it before you login.

have you changed or deleted the shortcuts they had before? RES for the session can be configured and saved as a link.

No, no there could be a file. just open mststc.exe configure all settings like servername, resolution and save it to the desktop of the user (or place it in a share on the network for all users).
