    I am using screen sharing to connect my Windows PC, but it is not so good as below, where can I find a better VNC viewer so I can view it in full screen?

    If you click the two diagonal arrows at top right in the shared window, you will get screen sharing to use the full screen.

    Any VNC viewer is going to only show you the same resolution as the screen on the host computer, so making the window bigger isn't actually going to get you more screen space; instead it will just make all of the text and icons larger. If the display on the Windows computer can be set to a higher resolution, then do that, and then you will have more screen space when you connect by VNC.

    I found real VNC viewer has a big problem, it always reconnect to my PC because I am using wireless LAN! but screen sharing never!
