Windows 7: How to make a remote desktop connection fill in my entire monitor?

How to make a remote desktop connection fill in my entire monitor?

When I make a remote desktop connection to my PC at work using Citrix, the screen appears small on my home PC monitor. It's basically a square box in the middle of the screen surrounded by a thick gray border on the left and right sides.

I was told that there is a way to get it to fill up my entire monitor by opening the remote desktop connection window, closing it, then re-opening it, but it doesn't seem to be working for me. I am probably doing something wrong.

I am using Windows 7 and when I go into the Remote Desktop Connection options, the Remote Desktop Size under the Display settings is set to full screen.

Can anyone please tell me how to get the RDC window to fill in my monitor's entire screen?

What is the resolution of the Windows 7 monitor? There is a known issue with monitors set to 1366x768. Assuming your monitor is set to this, try changing it then retry full-screen.

Also, please try pressing Cntrl+Alt+Break
