Understand the zoom option in RDP 10

Q. What is the zoom option in RDP 10?

A. Many displays today are hi-definition and the operating system adjusts the local zoom so text and icons are usable however if you open a RDP session to a remote OS instance then it can look very small as the same detection logic to adjust the scaling does not occur. To help with this the RDP client now has a zoom capability which is accessed by right clicking the RDP icon as shown.
