Remote Desktop Protocol

This one always bothers me and I never remember the key combo to make an Remote Desktop session full screen so I will post it here for myself as well as others.

For a complete description of what RDP or Remote Desktop Protocol please see this Microsoft Article.

This key combo will make an RDP session full screen. Once I open an Remote Desktop window and becomes “not full screen” it sometimes may not go back to full screen even though you maximize the window,

To make an RDP session window full screen again use the below key combo.

Ctrl+Alt+Break
