    I’m connecting from my Android phone which has a resolution of 1080×2220 to a Windows 10 desktop. I’m trying to get the desktop to fit my whole phone’s screen while in portrait mode. I’m not sure how exactly to do that. Simply inputting portrait resolution into the custom resolution textbox doesn’t work. Also, even if it did work, everything would look small because of the higher ppi(?) so I’d need to increase the zoom somehow. Could someone guide me in how to do these two things? Thanks in advance.

    Hi, the available resolutions in the Display settings of the connection menu are those which are supported by your OS’s system configuration. Therefore, and provided I’ve understood what you are trying to achieve, what you need to do is change the orientation on your Windows machine to allow NoMachine to show the content in portait mode.

    See this page on the Microsoft website:

    Does this help?
