Use multiple monitors on VPS

If you’re using multiple monitors on your system setup and you regularly connect to other systems via Remote Desktop, you know how frustrating it is to go from a multiple-monitor display to a single-monitor display for your remote connection. If so, you’ll definitely want to learn how you can take advantage of multiple monitors in Microsoft Windows 7’s Remote Desktop Connection.

However, before we go any further it is important to understand right off the bat that multiple-monitors support is available only on Windows 7 Ultimate and Windows 7 Enterprise.

To begin, Launch Remote Desktop Connection and select the system you want to connect to with multiple-monitor support from the Computer drop-down list. Then, click the Options button to expand the Remote Desktop Connection window so that you can see all the tabs. Next, choose the Display tab and select the Use All My Monitors for the Remote Session check box, as shown in Figure A. To complete the procedure, return to the General tab and click the Save button.

Selecting the Use All My Monitors for the Remote Session check box is all that is needed to enable the multiple-monitor feature.


When you connect to the remote system, the remote system’s monitor will instantly fill your multiple monitors, just as if it were physically connected to the monitors.
