There seems to be an issue with a full hd laptop on rdp sessions as it is not scaling the remote resolution to the result is extremely small font. I went to dell tech support today and they said the issue is on windows 8 ... anyone know of a solution?

Hi.

Open for workarounds? Try this one, it's a tool that enables you to change the font size remotely: http://www.michelstevelmans.com/change-text-size-remote-desktop-session/

Hmm, wait. I had only used it on vista and win7 - it does not work correctly on 8.1, sorry, just tried it.

Ah, now I remember, there was a second one... just tried it on 8.1 x64, it works: http://www.datafilehost.com/d/14271a00

I have never had to do this on experts-exchange...but I must warn at least other users. The download has installed various other software such as speed optimizers and such. I thought it was a clean install of just what I needed so I simply clicked next overlooking the amount of trash that would also be installed.

The install install it a wrapper for ad related spyware. I was disappointed.

The datafilehost one? Virustotal has scanned it as clean and it has done no such harm to my test System, sorry. It is however possible that contents get controlled and even dynamically exchanged by a malicious third party. Sorry!

"Use our download manager and get recommended downloads"

That is what caused it..... the download manager. It's checked by default and I didn't notice it. How can I check what was installed?

Not the data host file...but the wrapper. Try to download from the link you sent and you will see.

After having done all that...still the font on the remote is very small. There is no scaling available it seems.

So why would it work for me on 8.1 x64? Surely it would work if we had the same settings. What is your client OS and what is your server OS? What size did you set with the tool?

Also I still would like you to describe what you did to get to the wrapper, I find no way to download malware using any of my links. No download manager is offered anywhere for me.
