Remote Desktop resizing

Hey guys,
I have a user with an issue with his remote desktop display.  The RDP file is set to view via full screen. He had his laptop connected to a TV.  When moving RDP session to the TV, it does not display in full screen and it shows scroll bars.  When I do a ctrl alt break, I get it on full screen and the scroll bars are even worse.  He wants the display of the RDP session to match the external screen exactly.  I don't think that there will be a solution to this so I think I will have to end up giving him a different remote access solution, but I wanted to see if you guys had any ideas first.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

When he moves his RDP session does he logoff or disconnect? If he is only disconnecting then his previous session screen size is still saved. Have him try to logoff before moving to the TV.

That's a good point.  I'll give that a shot.

Did you check the resolution display settings in Windows Remote Desktop Connection. That will also have an effect.

What is the resolution of your Windows Host machine and the resolution of the TV?  They may be too mismatched.
