Remote Desktop Connection Issue

Im having the following issue with remote desktop connection. The screen size of the remote desktop does not fit the screen of my laptop thereby requiring me to scroll up/down right/left to view the entire screen. It is apparently not the fault of the remote desktop since its not happening to anyone else connectiong to remote computer. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
