Remote Desktop Resolution

Posted on 2011-10-24

Hey guys,

I have a handheld device running Windows Mobile 6.5 and Remote Desktop Mobile. The application I am using is only able to display in 320x240 resolution, because of licensing. When I do 320 x 240, the image is a lot less than what I can view, in other words, I have a huge black border around my image, because the handheld devices has a higher resolution. How can I stretch the image to take up the whole screen? I am familiar with editing the .rdp file in a text editor. Is there a flag I can change to trigger full screen?

    There's only the "Smart sizing" setting (available since the RDP client for Windows XP), but to my knowledge, that only works to scale down (to avoid the scroll bars), not to scale up, sorry.

    VNC can scale up, but I don't know whether there's a client for Windows Mobile supporting this as well.
