Spanning RDS session across multiple screens

I have a laptop and two additional external monitors. I am able to extend my laptop's screen to these two monitors giving me three monitors/screens in all. I am trying to access my company's RDS 2012 R2 environment which when using two monitors/screens can be spread across both monitors/screens. For some reason now that I have three monitors/screens I am no longer able to spread the RDS session across two monitors/screens. The session is only able to be maximized to one screen. I want to be able to maximize/spread my RDS session across the two monitor screens and still use my laptops screens as an additional screen (third screen) for additional work.

Any idea/suggestions on how to accomplish this?

The issue appears to be with the specific application that was being deployed. After trying other applications I was able to get the session to span multiple monitors.

Thanks!
