Remote Desktop Text Size

RDP Remote Desktop Text Size

A few of our clients have to remote into their office PCs from their 14″ or 12″ laptops. They found the text was too small on the remote PC and they couldn’t change the text size.
If the remote PC is running with Windows 7, Microsoft has a hotfix for this problem. This hotfix can download from the following link.

Also, If you find the text size too small when connecting to a remote desktop using RDP, you can adjust the display settings to make the text larger. Here’s how to:

Start the remote desktop connection and click on the “Show Options” button.

Click on the “Display” tab.

Adjust the “Display Configuration” slider to increase the size of the remote desktop display.

First Click “Font Smoothing” from the drop-down menu and then select Font Smoothing.

Click on the “Apply” button to save the changes and connect to the remote desktop.

If the above steps do not work for you, you can try adjusting the display settings within the remote desktop operating system itself. For example, in Windows, you can go to “Settings” > “System” > “Display” and adjust the scale and layout settings to make the text larger.
