Use SCCM to remote control multiple monitors
When using SCCM to remote control multiple monitors; allow the ability to select only one monitor to be remote controlled; vs. the option now of only stretching.
This is now available in the 1902 current branch release https://t.co/NQZLL5rWjE!

If the UI could have PIP support and it had the main work space on one monitor and you can switch by clicking on the PIP window to any monitor. This would be killer.
The suggestions made in the comments would help us to be much more efficient while supporting end users. It is very difficult to operate if the end user has multiple monitors without having to change settings or scroll a significant amount. Another issue noted is trying to click different areas when a user has multiple monitors. I’ve learned this tends to happen a lot more if the monitors have different display resolutions. Over a period of calls this consumes a lot of time trying to walk a user through changing the resolutions settings over then phone. It’s easy to suggest that your users need to simply use the same resolution on all monitors. Though, if the monitors are physically different there may only be the choice of using different display resolutions. Even if there could be an option to view a single monitor during a connection it would help with both of these problems.
I feel that this feature is mandatory in this type of product/tool.
I work with many Computers with two or three Displays

the tool is outdated and needs a complet renewal, so that it again corresponds to the requirements of a modern IT

The only workaround I've found is Enabling Scale to Fit, and resizing my RC Viewer Window to take up an equal amount of screens as my customer. This only works because I have multiple screens. Sometimes I'm RDP into a different Site Server and using RC from there with only one window. Would Love to see multiple monitor support.

Thank You for adding SCCM Remote Viewer it is far better the RDP for helping clients or RA.
That being said, I would like the DPI issue fixed and MultiScreen Support to be added.
These features work in an alternate program such as Team Viewer.
Thank You for your time.
Please also add support for Display Scaling.
When you use Remote Control Viewer on a device with display scaling, the mouse location is out of sync.

We are also planning to rollout SCCM Remote control tool. As stating by others still some show stoppers are there.
I have the same problem on some windows 10 1703 machines that the mouse is out of sync on the screen. We are using SCCM 1706. When will MS fix this problem. Next year we want to make a global rollout
This is overdue, seriously. It a fact, they know it, it's your product, do you care?

About this suggestion, do you have any forecast to be in the preview edition?

This problem seems to have been an issue for many years. It's quite unbelievable that it's still an issue today. I have been trying to champion SCCM Remote Control to my IT colleagues. They are kicking back at me and asking to go back to VNC. This move to SCCM has just made me look incompetent. PLEASE FIX IT.

We are all but ready to abandon the remote control manager because of the multiple monitor issue and seemingly complete lack of support.

I can confirm that we are aware of this issue and are tracking it internally.
Is there an offical complaint to Microsoft ? Or we have to go with another third party application that can arm your computers
Also, I noticed a two second or more delay. It is almost like the Remote Control Viewer does not play with with Windows Aero or something. Nice request.
Well, just figured out something:
Setup: 1 console and connected to a 3 Screen Monitor Setup (1x SP4Pro with 2x 24''FullHD)
Initial view: very bad! can see 3 monitors tailed over my RC, not possible to click or do something without headache
Changed: View > Scale to Fit >>> removed the flag! (default it's flagged)
Resulting View: first I can see the main monitor (SP4Pro) in a proper and workable scale, and on bottom of the Console I can see now a scrolling Bar, scrolling to the right I'll land on the second screen, also good conditions and workable, scrolling more to the right comes up the 3rd screen, also usable.
Hm, well, it's only a workaround for the moment, and maybe it's not working for everybody, but it gives me precisely clickable view, and less headache.
But I do really agree with the argument: buttons to change monitors would be not a nice to have, it would be a MUST (or any other technique solving these scaling troubles)
maybe this help

This is a huge problem for us, we have issues with the mouse being out of sync on the screen and is a real headache for us. I hope we can get this fixed soon!!
