    Hello,

    NoMachine server on Linux, NoMachine enterprise client on Windows.
    Lets say server resolution is 1280×800 and client resolution 1920×1200 – I do not want to change server/client resolution I just want client window borders to fit given server resolution(smaller than client) – how do I do that ?

    Thanks,
    Vilius M.

    I assume you’re connecting to a physical desktop available on the Linux server. As soon as you connect to the remote desktop, a sequence of panels will show some tutorials and allow a quick configuration about display and audio. I’ve attached an image to show the one you must configure: uncheck the “Change the server resolution …” box to avoid to resize the remote desktop. You can then change the size of the client window without fearing to resize the desktop on Linux.

    But that is my question how to resize client to fit – initial window size doesn’t match server resolution, there is no “fit to window button” – so only way to do this it drag window borders manually using mouse – that is annoying.

    Client window doesn’t change size automatically except in specific cases. You could resize the window at least once while you’re connected to the remote desktop, and check the box “Remember current window size and position” in the disconnection panel (screenshot attached). If you need your window to start at a certain size, add the option --geometry WxH[+X+Y] to the application’s shortcut.
