Terminal session display setting.


  • Windows 2003 terminal server. Clients include XP, Windows 7 and some Mac tablets and laptops.  Most users find everything too small in terminal session and the work around we found is to increase the display setting on the remote user's local side.  Generally, changing the setting to 1024x768 give them the best view when they log onto the terminal server.  Wondering if there is a way to adjust the display settings in terminal and can it be set globally so that everyone who logs onto this terminal have the same setting.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi,

    Try changing the DPI setting of  your desktop properties on you terminal server. Log on again and test.
