Splitting Windows inside a Remote Desktop Session

1 discussion post
Hi Guys

I've searched old discussions and can't find a fix.

How do I split screens INSIDE a remote desktop session?

When I remote into my work computer from home, it automatically adjusts the resolution to fill my ultrawide home monitor really nicely. However it's just one giant screen.

At home I use Display Fusion to create a couple of custom split profiles.

Note, I don't want to snap the remote session to a split window on my home monitor. I know how to do that and it's not what I'm after. I WANT my work computer to fill the screen of my home computer, but in a usable way.

If I need to instal Display Fusion on my work computer that is fine. However I want it changed automatically when remoting in (if possible), so I'm not manually changing it back when I return to the office.

I hope this makes sense.

You would have to have DisplayFusion installed on the computer you're remoting into.

I don't believe there is a way to have it automatically apply the splits after you've remoted in, but you should be able to create a monitor profile and attach a key combination to it, and use that after you've remoted in.
