Remote Desktop Services - trying to limit to single monitor

Hello - I'd like to have an RDS session on a remote computer with 2 monitors limited to a single monitor.
I thought the "use multimon:i:0" would do that, but it's still opening up on both monitors.
I copied in the .rdp file below; what have I got wrong?
Thanks

the server has multiple monitors and you want to restrict client to 1 monitor or client has multiple monitors and you want to restrict to 1 monitor?

Client (the workstation I use when I'm on-site) has 2 monitors; I would like to restrict to 1 when I am working from home (also 2 monitors).
I would like to have the remote workstation on one of my at-home monitors, and my at-home workstation on the other.
Thanks

There's a control box "use all monitors" that needs to be checked in the options of the rd client application.

UN-checked, right? I only want 1 of the remote monitors to display on one of my local monitors.

McKnifeCommented:
Yes, I checked. However, you will always see the contents of both remote monitors squeezed into one of yours - that is how Rdp works.

ok, I think I see how I got confused on this. Thanks for your responses.
