Static Window Size / Dual Monitor

Larry Gray, User (Posts: 24)

I connect to my office computer from home.  Both my office computer and home computer have two monitors.  I like to show both monitors in my viewing window and then stretch it across both of my home monitors, that way I don't have to switch between remote monitors.

The problem is that, occasionally, my connection gets interrupted.  Luckily, it does reconnect (eventually   :( )  but the viewing window tries to automatically size itself to something other than what I had before the interruption.

Is there any way to make a session remember the viewing window size?

Hello Larry,

Thank you for your message.

This solution might help you:
1. In Viewer create 2 different connections to the same Host. But give them different names (Like "Home monitor 1" and "Home monitor 2")
2. Disable Tabbed view mode (Tools -> Options -> Remote screen -> Uncheck Tabbed view checkbox -> OK)
3. Open both connections
4. Select different monitons on each connection
5. Locate connection windows on your monitors as you want

Looking forward to your reply.
