I have a Server 2008 Standard Term Server 15 user licenses.
All users connect to the Term Server with the built in RDP client of windows 7
How can I change the default display resolution for all users ?
Now it is stuck on 1600 by 1900
I tried to change desktopwidth:I  and desktopheight:i:, but this does not seem to work

You can't configure it on the TS server as the client negotiates this.

So creating a shortcut on the client in MSTSC with a different resolution is not working ?

When I use the following command 'MSTSC /v 10.0.0.2 /w:1200 /h:800', the size of the window changes on the Win7 client, but not the resolution

OK, but please configure the session after you opened mstsc (target server, res) and then save it as a file and use it to connect a RDP to the terminal server.

I can't change the resolution in the windows RDP client, only the screen size and the color depth
