Chapter 10. RDP-specific settings

The following sections describe configuration settings available only for the RDP protocol. Use the following policies to control who, when, and how can access the RDP connection.

Using multiple monitors (Multimon) is supported. To enable Multimon, use one of the following three methods:

  • enable Display > Use all my monitors for the remote session option in the Remote Desktop Client (mstsc.exe) window of the client machine

  • use the /multimon switch on the mstsc.exe command line

  • add the use multimon:i:1 row to the RDP file


The Maximum display width and Maximum display height options should be high enough to cover the combined resolution of the client monitor setup. Connections that exceed these limits will automatically fail. Make sure to adjust these settings if your clients use multiple monitors. For example, if your clients use two monitors that have a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels each, set Maximum display width to 4000, and Maximum display height to 2200.
