Hello Experts,

I have a remote desktop app on a 2008 R2 and for some reason, the nested session window can't be resized. What setting should I be configuring to fix this? Thank you for your help.

Thank you!

I noticed it had some slight improvement when I changed the custom RDP settings by opening the session using notepad. Is there a setting that I am missing?

Was able to solve the issue. It's the registry setting that needs to be adjusted.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TermDD:
•      FlowControlDisable: When set to 1, this value disables the new flow control algorithm, making it essentially First-In-First-Out (FIFO) for all packet requests. This provides results similar to Windows Server 2003. (The default for this value is 0).
•      Create FlowControlDisplayBandwidth / FlowControlChannelBandwidth: FlowControlDisplayBandwidth = 100% and FlowControlChannelBandwidth = 100% creates an equal bandwidth distribution between video and VCs. The default is 70 for FlowControlDisplayBandwidth and 30 for FlowControlChannelBandwidth, default distribution equal to 70–30.
