How to zoom in and out?

When the host is a single monitor, I can use stretch mode on the viewer and then simply resize the window to zoom out to get a good size of the remote screen on my desktop. When the host is multiple monitors though, and I want to see all the monitors, the stretch mode is really small and I can't zoom in much because it is so wide, it hits both sides of my local monitor... and if I use normal mode, it is way too big and I have to scroll a lot to see everything. I need to be able to control the zoom so I can get somewhere between the 2. I need it bigger than stretch mode, but smaller than normal mode.

In VNC, I could use the + and - keys at the top to quickly and easily zoom to whatever size needed.

Is there anything like that here?

Hello Jack,

There is no zooming function available in Remote Utilities, but it makes a good feature suggestion. We will think about how if it's possible to implement it and how to do that better.

Thank you.

Thank you. Otherwise multi-monitor hosts are almost impossible to use.

Hello Jack,

You can also switch to each individual monitor using an icon on the toolbar in the Full Control mode.

Another way to work with two monitors can be as follows:

1. Create two identical connections (for the same remote PC) in your address book.

2. Open the first connection in the Full Control mode and select the first monitor from the drop down monitor selector on the toolbar.

3. Open the second connection in the Full Control mode and select the second monitor. This is necessary for the program to memorize which monitor you select for which connection.

4. Then you can open both connections on two different tabs and quickly switch between them.

Hope that helps.
