RDP from Dual 1280x1024 to same but Left Screen becomes both (Span)

Hi, I successfully RDP from Dual 1280x1024 to same remotely, both running DFP3.1.6. but it seems I have to use /span to have the remate dual scrain locally so the Fences normally running on the left screen flows over to the full span and gets messed up with the icons normally on the right screen.

%systemroot%\system32\mstsc.exe home.rdp /w:2560 /span /h:1024 /v:ted.dyndns.org

Am I doing it wrong / missing a parameter?

Thanks - Erich

Hi Erich, sorry I'm a bit confused. Is this a problem with DisplayFusion, RDP or Fences? Thanks!

Thnaks Jon,

I am running exactly the same dual Screens both sides (1280 x 1024) set up with DF latest version splitting it as 2 screens

I am also running Fences

On the 1P screen I have it fully (all space used) set up with a series of fences for the various headings so that any "general" "save to desktop icons" build up on the right screen (untill I allocate, save, delete, whatever them) - typical desktop style.

This works well until I RDP to the "other" side (home work) with mstsc which seems to need a /span parameter for me to see the remote dual screen fully on my local dual screens.

It is here where the remote screen changes to a single 2560 x 1024 "spanned" screen ( still no problem although I was hoping that DF would keep them seperate) but the Fences setup now streches over the full 2560 width and the RH display temp/casual/whatever icons get squashed out of "their" display area and over the spanned screen and messes up the whole nicely "organised(?)" dual (2 x 1280) screens.

OK - if I get rid of Fences, I will probably be OK excepts I lose the fuctionality of Fences.

Does that make any sense? :-P

Regards - E

Thats more of an issue with RDP. the same thing happens with DF off correct? The only thing DF really does is change wallpapers, granted its grow a lot, but that's all it really does. Making two screens one sounds much more like an issue with RDP.

Thanks Guys,

I have created another fence for the stuff in the RH display so it will stretch (I hope) with the screen going to one double screen.

Did see somewhere that one can have dafault "save to desktop" go somwhere spesiific but don't think Fences has that sofistication.

Thanks again - was nice to deal with you so direct. Will really come and have look what else you have!

My Work PC allowed me to SPAN same as RDP so fences now stays where the are supposed to be. Does mean I don't need DF there any more but I have aother PC's at home where it will work well!

It depends what you are using DF for. DF won't help you organize your desktop icons, and it can't add a taskbar when there is only 1 spanned monitor, but it can help you when you have more than 1 monitor, and it can provide you with some excellent desktop wallpaper.
