Screen Resolution is a problem for me, when access terminal services. i access the same server through many worstations as i travel about.
sometimes i get scroll bars, other times not.
sometimes i get a full screen, other times not.. depends on what workstation i am using.

would you not think that if i matched the serveres resolution to the workstation i am using, that the remote desktop would display a screen without scroll bars.

we work all day using terminal services and i am trying to understand the relationship between the workstation and server.

You can set the resolution in the Remote Desktop client program.
Click the Options button and then there is the tab for the Display.
