Remote Desktop Display

In the last few days, we have had issues with how the desktop is displayed in a remote session.    We run 2 terminal servers that users use RDP to access applications.   We have an icon created for the remote session that is used by all employees.     For example:   It is saved/pointing to Y:\RDP_kirk.rdp

In the last few days, it will not HOLD the display settings we have set.     Users complain that it is too small.   so I look at the above and go to Edit and sure enough.....   The slider has went all the way to the right.    Or on the other server, it has moved to 1280 x 800.     I change it, save it.     But then the next day when they log in, its back to where it was.  

I cant find where it may be getting changed in group policy???????

Assistance appreciated on where I might find the issue causing this.

No idea what may have changed in the last week.  

Also, I have a network admin login account that when I log in with that....It looks fine.

I have also looked at the rdp file via notepad, and here is what it has:

screen mode id:i:1
desktopwidth:i:1280
desktopheight:i:1024

But that is not what it is has in the rdp display settings

Rdp does funny stuff like this for me too. I switched to rdcman and problems disappeared.

You can save a connection or group of connections as a file. Shortcut to that. I don't know if you can set auto connect of if this will add an extra click to your workflow
