Hey Guys,

I have 4 monitors on my computer ... I use RDP to remote into a VM for work ... I am looking for a way to use 3 of the screens for RDP and not the 4th ..

So far I have not found a way to get this done ... So thought I would ask ..

Thanks for the help ..

    Hi,

    You need to use the mstsc /l command to get a list of your monitors and then edit/add selectedmonitors:s: setting in your .rdp file. Please see article below:
