Windows 10 Virtual Desktop not honored by RDP "all monitors" setting


  • Anyone else seeing this?

    1. Create a new desktop with the Task View button.
    2. Switch to the new, empty desktop.
    3. Open a remote desktop session, selecting the "Use all my monitors for the remote screen" option.
    4. The remote session opens on all screens, as desired, but it is also on all desktops.

    I would like the remote session to "stay" on the virtual desktop it was opened on and leave everything else alone.  This current state is rather worthless.
