Hi,
I have a windows 2007 user that is using remote desktop to log into a windows 2003 server. No matter what resolution the win 7 computer is on the windows 2003 session is 1280x1024. I cannot change the remote desktop resolution to 800 x 600. How do I change that for just 1 user?

Yes that only changes the window. Not the resolution of the session. The remote session does not allow you to change it.

sorry I was misunderstanded your question, so you want to change the session resolution but without effecting other users?

this will work

mstsc.exe /v "servername" /w 800 /h 600

yes, i see that screenshot now; seems you posted that within seconds of my comment
not sure what you mean by resolution of the session...that slider controls that
it's the resolution of the remote session and how big it shows on your screen
if you put 800x600 that will be the window size and the resolution of your remote session
if it's something else please post screenshot

So basically they want the remote session bigger so they can read it easier, but keep the remote screen full screen.

so you are saying that the win 7 pc (the one I am sitting at) has to be set for 800x600 resolution in order for it to be full screen?

I believe so since you are setting full screen for the rdp session.
