Thread: vncviewer full screen

    Default vncviewer full screen

    Hello,
    so far I use vncviewer host :1 , to connect to a remote vnc server.

    The problem is that the screen I get is pretty small . I have tried to found if there i a full screen mode. I found that pressing the f8 button a full screen button appears.
    Pressing this button doesnot make the screen to make use of the full screen resolution and thus it fills the rest of the screen with black background color.

    Is it possible to say to the vncviewer "Hey, I am running on a higher resolution could you please try to use it? If you make it then there is some pizza waiting for you"

    I would like to thank you in advance for your help
    Regards
    Alex

    Hi,

    I think you have to change the resolution on the remote vnc server because the vnc client takes what it receives from the server.
    You could try changing the resolution through the vnc session itself or with other methods You're comfortable with.
