I have RDP running on my Win7Pro and am remoted onto an XP Pro.  With that RDP window up on my machine, I see an app I have running on the XP box I am remoted onto, but, the upper area of that app is up in an area I cannot reach and cannot scroll to.  I have had this problem before, but don't remember how to make the upper area grab-able again.

change your resolution.  The remote machine must have lower to fit so you won't have to scroll at all.

using the task bar > select focus on application > alt + space > m to move > use arrow keys to move the window

I wanted to verify that you're not experiencing a resolution issue?  You're able to see everything that you need on the desktop right?

Display configuration set to Large and ticked use all my monitors for the remote session and ticked display the connectino bar when I use the full screen
