Azure RDP VM Screen Resolution Problem

Copper Contributor



When I remote to Azure VM, the screen resolution is very big and I am not able to change the settings. There is this message "The display settings can't be changed from a remote session."




I did searched through some forums to find solutions. There is this saying need to modify two registry values. Too bad my registry does not have the two registry values stated:


  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\GUID\0000\DefaultSettings.XResolution
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Video\GUID\0000\DefaultSettings.YResolution



Therefore, would like to seek for help to solve this problem. The problem I am facing now is the screen too big and when I am trying to install programs, I am not able to view the 'Next' button.


Thank you in advanced for any help.

If you scoll down, do you see Advanced Settings and List All Modes?



The problem is solved now and I didn't do anything to it. The Azure VM is scheduled to shut down every night and when I remote to the VM this morning, the screen resolution has changed to the normal size. :)


Thank you and appreciate your reply.
