Custom Remote Desktop Screen Resolution

Having recently sat up several VirtualBox virtual machines on my Asus G46VW, I wanted to access them using Remote Desktop Connection on Windows. However, the Asus G46VW gaming ultrabook has a screen resolution of 1366x768, which is unsupported by Remote Desktop Connection. You'll instead find that it support the following resolutions:

640x480
800x600
1024x768
1280x720
1280x768
1280x1024
1440x900
1440x1050
1680x1050
1920x1080
Full Screen

These resolutions just won't work for me, because VirtualBox can't dynamically change the virtual machine screen resolution. Fortunately, I did find a trick to set any custom resolution I like. And the trick is to use RDP file.

When you start Remote Desktop Connection, it will ask you for all the settings for any remote computer you want to connect to. Once you are happy with the settings (short of the display configuration), go back to the "General" tab and "Save As..." the connection settings. Put the RDP file anywhere you like (e.g. the desktop).

Once it's saved, I found it is just a text file. Open up Notepad and drag the RDP file onto Notepad. Change the following two values to anything you like:

desktopwidth:i:1366
desktopheight:i:768
