On the MacBook Pro 14" when connecting to RDP the desktop displayed cuts off about 20-30 pixels at top and bottom. The MacBook display is set to "Default for this Screen" 


btw This is a great application!

Happens on the 16 inch as well.  Maybe an issue in compensating for the notch?  On my MacBook Air, full screen works great (nothing clipped and the menu bar auto-hides).   On the 16", the mac remote desktop menu bar does not hide, and clips off the windows menu bar (see pic).  Would be great to get a resolution to this,  Thanks!Screen Shot 2021-11-12 at 5.51.08 AM.png

Actually with some searching I found the fix! Open the Get Info box for the app and check the “scale to fit below the camera” option (about ½ way down) Dismiss the Info box and it works fine after that

Thanks for the suggestion.   I tried it on my 16", but it doesn't seem to make any difference whether it's checked or not.  I appreciate the reply though...

I stumbled on the solution. Edit the RDP settings for the machine itself, click on the display tab and check the two boxes for optimize to retina, and update resolution on change.  That fills the screen nicely without clipping.  Hope it helps!   Thanks
