Hi,
I've installed remote utilities viewer on a new computer, and can't figure out how to enlarge the window size. It also seems that the preferences window is very small. Any ideas how to enlarge the view? I am running this on Window 10 via Parallels Desktop.

Hello Amy,

Thank you for your message.

Does the maximize window button work? I mean the second screenshot with the Full Control window.

Hi, thank you for the response. The maximize button makes the Viewer window larger, but the computer screen inside the viewer window remains the same size.

Hello Amy,

This is because the resolution on the remote computer screen is lower than the resolution on the Viewer screen, and you are viewing the remote desktop "pixel-for-pixel". You should enable the stretch mode to fill the entire desktop on the Viewer side.

Right click on the connection item in the address book, select Properties -> Modes -> Stretch.



Note, however, that this way you are simply stretching the image, not adding more pixels (graphical information) to it. So the image may not look as crisp as you would expect if the remote resolution were the same as the local one.
