Remote Desktop Connection Manager (RDCMan) is it possible to scale? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there!

    I am using Remote Desktop Connection Manager (RDCMAN) on an 4K display. Now I don't want the remote servers to be more than 1920x1080. At the same time I need them to bu scaled to fully fill the client area. Is it possible to scale without changing resolution? I can't find it in the menu and wasn't google lucky either.

    In TeamViewer there is such option for example.

    mrMad-Cat with respect.

  • Hi,

    As there only virtual test environment by myself, I am unable to re-produce it. below is suggestion and just for your reference:
    Right click the system on your RDCM, select Properties. Then:
    1. Select Remote Desktop Settings tab, un-select Inherit from parent, select Custom and manually enter 1920 * 1080.
    2. Select Display Settings tab, un-select Inherit from parent, select Scale docked remote desktop to fit window and Scale undocked remote desktop to fit window.

    Save the change and check the result. 

    Best Regards,

  • thank you for your answer. it is the first thing I suggested myself. only it doesn't work as we would suggest. I can't even understand the meaning of this scaled docked and undocked window. Anyway it has no effect on the clients area view. (

  • First you need to disable display scaling on high DPI settings directly on RDCMan.exe, see picture below:


    Then try to set Remote Desktop Connection Manager like this: 

    And inherit settings for all servers.
