Remote Desktop resizing

Last Modified: 2017-12-03
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.
