Hello,

Is it possible to change text size in a remote desktop session on a windows 2008 R2 server ?

On Windows 2003, when i changed text size on the console admin session, all rdp sessions are changed. But it doesn't work with windows 2008 server.

Any idea ?
Thanks

Oh, there's a hotfix? Never knew ... :)
If you would like to go without that fix (which does require an unwanted restart), please take this one, I used it successfully:  http://www.michelstevelmans.com/change-text-size-remote-desktop-session/

As suggested by SARVJITA, you need to install KB 2726399 hotfix (Hope this will resolve your problem),

for some user, this problem has not solved even though they have installed above hotfix, pls check below technet thread.

if that didn't work, run below command while taking rdp,

Set display setting while taking rdp.
mstsc.exe /w:1024 /h:768
