Multiple monitors in Remote Desktop session?

Hello Experts - I have a user who would like to use multiple monitors at home when connecting to her work machine via RDP.  We don't want to span the screens but rather use both monitors independently.  She is running Windows 10 Home edition at home and is connecting to Windows 7 Pro at work.  Is this possible and if so, how would I enable it?

Sorry - you can't.  Unless you upgrade to Windows 7 Enterprise at work.  Multi-monitor RDP (independent monitors) is a feature of Enterprise, not Pro.

That's what I was afraid of, thanks for the confirmation!
In the connection options, there is a checkbox "use all my monitors" or the like. Try it out and you'll know.
That's correct...
So you should upgrade your work computer to win10 pro - it supports multimon rdp being the server-end.
Or, another option, install another remote control software on it, for example the free ultraVNC offered multimon support long ago already.
