  1. DRabb1t macrumors newbie

    I am stuck working on a PC at work, but I only have Macs at home. I use Microsoft's remote desktop on my Mac to work from home occasionally, but I cannot get it to full-screen, so the real estate I have to work with is VERY limited (especially when using my 15" MBA). Presumably, I could run VNC on my work PC, for which I assume I could find a full-screen VNC client on Mac... That said, does anyone know if there is a way to full-screen the RDP client or if Micro$oft has a new version in the works that will?

    Why not use LogMeIn?

    What version of RDP are you using? I have been able to do fullscreen with RDP since about 2007. It is in the preferences.

    that's just what I as thinking.

    Mouse all the way to the top of screen and you should have the screen options.

    For a while there I was like the op, maximized vertically but not horizontally until I found that.

    the program I'm talking about is the free MS client 'plug-in'.
