You can use the selective multiple-monitor feature to select the monitors on which to display a remote desktop window. For example, if you have three monitors, you can specify that the remote desktop window appears on only two of those monitors. By default, a remote desktop window appears on all monitors in a multiple-monitor setup.

You can select up to four adjacent monitors.

This feature is not supported for remote applications.

    Thumbnails of the monitors that are currently connected to the client system appear under Display Arrangement. The display topology matches the display settings on the client system.

    When you select a monitor, its thumbnail changes color. A warning message appears if you violate a display selection rule.
