Using Multiple Monitors With Your Server or VPS

Most traders use multiple monitors when trading. This doesn't have to change since the Remote Desktop Connection app used by ChartVPS clients has full multi-monitor support - all it requires is a single tick of a box. Here's where to find it:

Start the Remote Desktop Connection app or Microsoft Remote Desktop app as outlined in the remote connection guide

Once the app is launched, click Show Options then Display tab

Tick Use all my monitors for the remote session

Click Connect


The Remote Desktop Connection / Microsoft Remote Desktop apps support either a single or all monitors in full screen mode. For example, if you have 3 monitors, you cannot have the app running full screen across 2.

To spread the app across a select number of monitors, connect without Use all my monitors for the remote session ticked, then move your mouse to the center-top of the screen and click on the window icon to run the app in windowed mode. Then click and hold the edges of the window to spread across as many screens as you'd like.

If you want to connect to your RDP session only using the particular monitors, please check this guide - How to select particular monitors to be involved in the remote session?
