Sunday, February 10, 2013 2:58 PMI just purchased a Surface Pro (really liking it by the way) and I plan on using it frequently to remote into other computers. As the Surface Pro has a high DPI settings and those other computers do not remoting into them results in a display which is insanely small. I know that there is a secret setting that can be added to a Remote Desktop profile to allow "smart scaling" which only works when the client is windowed and only scales out the client allowing the window to be smaller than the server resolution. Is there any such setting to allow the opposite so that I can specify a resolution lower than that of the client and have the client zoomed in? If not, I think that this would be a very useful addition.
Friday, April 05, 2013 3:47 PMYeah! Same issue for me, bought a Surface Pro to carry to job sites. I do a ton of Remote Desktop work, and trying to do it on the Surface is a challenge. I sure wish someone would write an RDP app that supports pixel doubling or some method to deal with the insanely small text you get in a Surface RDP session. Following are the workarounds I've found. Any other suggestions? 1. Set Surface resolution to 1366x768 and text scaling to 125% 2. Download and use the RT version of Remote Desktop. It supports zooming, the Desktop version does not. NOTE: It would be nice if the RT RDP app supported pinch-to-zoom. 3. Buy a miniDP to VGA adapter and use an external display. 4. Buy a pair of those goofy magnifying glasses that surgeons wear!!!
