Using RDP with Multiple Monitors

If you require multiple displays for your remote sessions using Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), this can be done a couple of different simple ways.

From RDP Options

  • From the Start Menu, open RDP.
  • Expand “Show Options”.
  • Open the “Display” tab.
  • Check the “Use all my monitors for the remote session” box.
  • Click Connect once the “Computer” field has been populated.

From Run

  • From the Start Menu, open Run.
  • Type mstsc.exe -multimon into the Run window, click OK, and sign into the desired machine.
  • The RDP window will open with the “Use all my monitors for the remote session” box already checked.
