    I'm using the Parallels client version 16.0.18456 on Linux and when I create a connection to an RDP server (tested with versions 2008R2 through 2016) with the MX flag on a client with a dual monitor setup, the client presents the RDP desktop to the user, but instead of seeing two separate monitors in the RDP session, a single large monitor is shown. For example a client with two 1680x1050 monitors sees a 3360x1050 display in its RDP session. The issue with this is than whenever a user maximizes a window, the application spans accross both screens. The same is true when viewing a video fullscreen.

    Is there a way to use configure the Parallels Client to use both monitors in an RDP session, but in a way that would create two monitors in the session?

    Thanks

    Shaun

    @ShaunD The "MX" option spans the desktop across all monitors i.e. combines a monitors and uses them as a single monitor. What you will need is the "MF" option which applies normal full screen (on the current monitor only or if combined with -Q on all available monitors).

    Thank you very much @jpc for answering my question. The online documentation for did not show the -Q command line option, so I was thrown for a loop. I should have checked the --help options.

    Your solution worked like a charm! Thanks for your help!
