Remote desktop screen not showing all of the screen

Last Modified: 2015-09-21
Using remote desktop from a windows 7 pc with a 19 inch square monitor to a windows 7 pc with a 24 inch wide monitor.

When remote desktop connects it will only show a 1\4 to 1\2 of the desktop with no scroll bar to change anything.

I tried to change the resolution  on the 24 in with no resolve.

I changed the advanced settings on the pc with 19 inch monitor to have remote desktop use full screen with no resolve.

Is there any way to see the whole desktop of a 24 inch wide monitor on a 19 inch square monitor using remote desktop ?
