How do I configure 2 screems when using remote desktop connection?

RSchierer asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am using a Dell that has 2 montiors connected to it and they work fine. I can click and drag one screen over into the 2nd one with no problems.

I then go into remote desktop and all my icons show up on screen one like they should. My mouse will move between screen 1 & 2. but if I try to click and drag an icon or a window into the second screen it stops.

I have the remote desktop control icon that connect to this second PC to use both screens.

Any ideas?

thanks in advance.
