Using Server 2016 for the session hosts and Windows 10 to connect.
BTW: Is there an up-to-date list of supported settings that I can refer to?
I tried to use the setting "use multimon" on the host pool with the below command and waited over night to ensure any delayed publishing propagation would have occurred. I then connected again with remote desktop but no change. Command I tried is copied below:
PS C:\Users\johan> set-rdshostpool -TenantName "munobia" -Name "pool" -ValidationEnv $true -CustomRdpProperty "use multimon:i:0"
TenantName : munobia
TenantGroupName : Default Tenant Group
HostPoolName : pool
FriendlyName : pool
Description : Created through ARM template
Persistent : False
EnableUserProfileDisk : False
CustomRdpProperty : use multimon:i:0;
MaxSessionLimit : 999999
LoadBalancerType : BreadthFirst
ValidationEnv : True

@Johan_Eriksson : We are continuously improving our documentation, and we have the latest, most up-do-date set here: https://docs.microsoft.com/windows-server/remote/remote-desktop-services/clients/remote-desktop-app-... .
Did the multi-mon property end up working? From what you've entered, it looks correct.

@Christian_Montoya Thanks for the reply and the link. Yes, I got it to work with that setting in the end.

@Johan_Eriksson Is this when using the Web to connect to the machine? via: https://rdweb.wvd.microsoft.com/webclient/index.html
just curious as I am trying to determine the multiMon use for the web login.

@BigAl144 : Unfortunately, we do not yet support the multi-monitor feature for the webclient yet.

How to do it with Windows Client, it spans all 3 monitors, users are forced to use Web Client.

do you just set the value to 1 if you do want multimonitor? The new deskop client form the store does not use multimonitor by default and I need it to?

@Oliver-76 : Thanks for the follow-up. Two things to note:

@Christian_Montoya - Is there a way to control this setting per user?

@Sai Gutta Each user has the ability to override the default setting. Right-click on the Application Group, choose "Settings", then uncheck "Use default settings" and suddenly will appear a few things each user can customize, including whether to use one monitor or multiple monitors.

@FortyMegabytes did you have to reboot the servers after this was applied? A lot of our users are using the RD app for Mac (which in general isn't great) and when they go in windowed mode, it puts their multiple monitors in a window. Looks awful. Anyone have any comment if this is a limitation with RD app for Mac?

@stevenzelenko No reboot needed, change happens immediately.
We don't have any Mac clients, so I can't speak as to why they would be doing that. I do know that you can have your local RD client settings set to override the app group default settings. So you may want to take a look to see what settings are enabled on those Macs.

@FortyMegabytes Mac app doesn't have these settings for workspaces. Only for direct RDP to a VM/PC.

@FortyMegabytes didn't realize there was a preview RD app for mac. This seems to work now.

@Sai Gutta I previously posted that we are now using teh Mac Beta client and it's working better for us. That being said, the Mac RD client is terrible.
