My mom just purchased a 20" iMac to replace her old windows laptop. She used remote desktop to access her windows computer at work. So I installed the remote desktop client for mac from the windows site and got it running. The problem is I cannot get the remote desktop window to get very big. It makes using remote desktop a pain as she cannot maximize it or at least make it half the screen size. I click on the little diagonal lines on the bottom right corner of the screen and drag the mouse but it doesn't seem to want to get an bigger. Any help?

Under Preferences, Display, there is a remote desktop size setting, try that.

1. Start the Remote Desktop Connection software.

2. There is a Menu Bar at the top of your screen.

3. Click on preferences.

4. Select the Display tab.

5. Select Remote Desktop Size and set to full screen (or any other size listed).

6. Disconnect RDC.

7. Reconnect RDC.

8. RDC should now open in the size you have selected.

Hope that works for you.
