RWW Display Issues - Scroll bars

    Every time I connect to the server or desktops from my Windows 7 laptop via
    RWW, the remote window is cropped - to view the edges I must use scroll bars.
    This happens no matter what screen size I choose in options - from smallest
    to full screen. When I connect via default.rdp, the window has no scroll
    bars. What setting is needed to make the (more convenient for remote) RWW
    interface display properly?

  2. From another forum....

    -------------------------------------
    I had the same issue - turns out it's the zoom level that you have set on
    IE8 that's causing the resolution to go haywire. check out this page -
    http://www.micklerandassociates.com/rdc-via-rww-misrepresented-resolution-on-windows-7-station/

    Basically to save you time so u don't have to read the page, there's a zoom
    level that's indicated at the bottom right of Internet Explorer 8. Mine was
    set to 150%, make sure it's set to 100%. Then you will have no problem.

    Hope this fixes your problem.

    I had a similar problem that was fixed by changing the zoom on IE8. Here is the recap of the problem and solution.

    SBS2008 Remote Web Workplace (RWW) screen size is small on XP/IE8.

    Tried changing tsweb.aspx per MSKB but nothing changed.
    'Resolution
    MsRdpClient.FullScreen = TRUE
    sresWidth = screen.width
    sresHeight = screen.height
    resWidth = 1
    resHeight = 1

    Tried changing the screen size on all computers, no change.

    The final fix was to change the zoom from 150 to 100% as per the earlier posts.

    Thank you for the fix it is very frustrating working through a 5" x 5" window.
