Thanks all. I will play with the settings you have mentioned and see if I can find the combination that works.

I think part of it is certainly resolution. My laptop is 3840x2160. The server is 1280x1024. I'll adjust the laptop and start from there.

Can't do it now, but hopefully later this evening.

The resolution settings on your laptop explains the problem. Step it down to something more readable from the Remote Desktop settings OR try the zoom feature I mentioned.

Not finding a setting to change the laptop resolution in Remote Desktop Connection under the Display tab. It's for the remote computer.

Search Remote Desktop Settings and got a system page that allows connection to this PC, which is not what I want.

I'll try the zoom feature this evening.

Changed the laptop to 1280X800 100% font size. Full screen on the Display tab in Remote Desktop Connection.

Worked!!
