    WINDOWS 2008 server v 6.0.6002 REMOTE DESKTOP DISPLAYS


    Hi All,
    I have a home system and work system both of them are same version windows 2008. At work I have the three monitors and at home I have same number of monitors. At work I have no problems extending my desktop onto all the three monitors, when I get home and try to log into work using RDP i can only extend the display to two monitors. While using the RDP from my home I use the option full screen and it still displays it only on two monitors and the rest of the space is grey.

    I have learned that under the group policy editor I can use the option remote desktop services I can edit the number of monitors I can use. When I use the gpedit.msc on my work desktop I dont see the option of RDP. And the screen display option is greyed out at 4096*1024. I googled a bit and found out that I can download the ADMX templates and install them, even after installing the hotfix i am still missing the RDP option where i can change the number of monitors.

    I am not sure how to proceed and why the work system is missing the RDP option in the first place, can you please point me to the right direction,

    Thanks alot all you guyz !!!!

    What happens if you try Teamviewer? RDP does have a lot of limitations.

    Thank you sir!!!

    I never tried Teamviewer I will give a try. I paid the RDP license wanted to see if I can use that.
