    Multiple Monitors in RDP ?


    Hi
    Whether the number of locally attached monitors affects the number of monitors attached via rdp ?
    I have 3 monitors locally, but only one works via RDP.
    Both systems are Windows 10

    Before you start the RDP session, click on "Show Options" button. Then click on the Display tab. Then put a check in the box for "Use all my monitors for the remote session." I'm not sure if that will accomplish what you want, though.

    I have this box checked, also tried to connect using the mstsc -multimon command
    The result has not changed.

    Hi folks

    @ugo21

    Try this :

    As always Windows documentation (contradiction in terms !!!) always hides good bits

    Save your RDP file, and open it in Notepad. Everyone's RDP file is different but yours may look like this:

    full address:s:x.x.x.x:3389
    prompt for credentials:i:1
    administrative session:i:1
    screen mode id:i:2
    span monitors:i:1
    use multimon:i:1
    selectedmonitors:s:0,1


    To get a list of monitors, run mstsc /l to LIST out all the monitors. You can also use mstsc /multimon as a command line to use multiple monitors.

    So for example :

    job done !!!
