Could you fix the Start bar so that it retains its size when connecting with remote desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've moved the start bar to the left of the screen and resized it to about 2.5 inches wide so that I can read the titles of the windows. When I connect to the host with remote desktop the start bar automatically resizes to approximately .75 inches. So every time I connect I have to resize the start bar back to my preferred size. So my request is for the start bar to stay set to the size that I set it to. I also tried locking the start bar. This did not help. It just made it so that I couldn't resize it back to my preferred size.

  • Hi,

    It’s a possible that these two screens are difference and screen resolution are not same.

    You can try to set remote desktop option settings for test:

    1 Go to remote desktop connection

    2 Click option

    3 Go to display

    4 set the screen resolution is the same as another one


    Also please follow these steps to prevent changing the size of taskbar:

    1 Type “gpedit.msc” in the Start menu’s search box and then press Enter

    2 Navigate to User Configuration, Administrative Templates, and then select Start Menu and Taskbar in the left column of the Group Policy editor.

    3 Double-click Prevent users from resizing the taskbar in the Settings section of the Group Policy editor.

    4 Select Enable and then click OK to save the changes.


    Hope it works.
