How can we improve Configuration Manager?

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.

        the tool is outdated and needs a complet renewal, so that it again corresponds to the requirements of a modern IT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

        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.

        Hi,
        Is there an offical complaint to Microsoft ? Or we have to go with another third party application that can arm your computers
        Thanks

        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
        cheers

        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!!

        +1 for multiple monitors
        +1 for reworking scaling issues

        The native remote control within Windows allows for so much more control over the session. I can't image it'd be difficult to incorporate some of the more desired features into CMRV.

        Please add this!
