    Remote desktop connection letters are very tiny


    I bought a new laptop with windows 10 mainly for remote desk top connection. When I connect to the server remotely the icons and letters are very tiny.
    How can I fix this?
    Is there any new app other than microsoft remote desktop connection?

    If your running Windows 10 Pro there is a full Remote Desktop utility built in. I use it all the time to remote into my Raspberry Pi. It's under Windows Accessories in the Start Menu. Other than that, open the settings for your current Remote Desktop connection App and see if you can change the screen resolution.

    See the Part Three in this tutorial: RDC - Connect Remotely to your Windows 10 PC - Windows 10 Forums

    It shows you how to select your preferred resolution for a remote session.

    Please could you make a screenshot showing your desktop and the remote session active on the desktop. I addition, please mention the set resolution for your remote session.

    Tutorials in case you need them:

    Are you using the Remote Desktop App or the actual Remote Desktop Connection that is in Windows Accessories and built into Windows?

    That should be irrelevant regarding the resolution and the size of the remote desktop. Both can be used in borderless full screen mode.

    Maybe, I don't personally know as I have never used the Remote Desktop App. Just wanted to cover all the bases in case one was different from the other.

    No "Maybe" here, I wouldn't post something like that if it was "Maybe".

    The app is fully and freely scalable, screenshots from just now using the MS Remote Desktop App connecting to my HTPC:
