TeamViewer Display Screen Settings.


  I am connecting to a remote computer using TeamViewer, but the screen size (smaller laptop ) of the remote computer it is smaller than the screen size of the computer i am connecting from (having a common size normal monitor).

  I want to be able to see the remote computer window as big as the monitor size of the computer i am connecting from.

If you put TeamViewer in full screen mode, does it not expand the display to the size of your monitor?    It won't make the actual display use a higher resolution -- that's limited by the system you're remoting in to; but I believe it will at least expand the display to your current monitor's size.
Gary CaseRetiredCommented:
Just to confirm whether or not that would work, I just tried it with a laptop that has a slightly smaller resolution than my desktop.   In fact, it will NOT expand to the full size => if you put TeamViewer in full screen, there is just black space around the area of the desktop that's not part of the smaller resolution of the other system.

So I suspect there's nothing you can do about it, unless the remote system supports a larger resolution.

  That seems to be the problem, if the remote system supports larger resolution or not.

If it does, you should be able to change it remotely => I just confirmed that this works.   But if it's already at the max resolution, this won't help with your desire to fill your local screen.
