Monitor resolution issue on Looking Glass


#1

I was watching the Looking Glass video the other day and Wendell talks about the native resolution of the connected monitor only being 1024x768. The fix for this is a device that emulates a connected monitor but I had an idea, but unable to test. I was having a problem at work with my citrix session applications resizing when the computer went to sleep. I found that there is a simulated monitor that the system looks to when the primary monitor goes offline. I edited this simulated monitor to have a 4k resolution and now it doesn’t resize anything or change their positions! I am wondering if this same method could help have other resolutions available without the dongle. Again, I don’t have a way to test and was an idea only. Hope it helps!
