The Display tab page allows you to configure display options.

In the General Options section, specify the general display properties, including color depth and screen size. If you would like to specify a custom screen size, select Custom in the drop-down list and then specify the size using the Width and Height fields.

If you have more than one monitor connected to your computer, select the Use all monitors for Desktop session option to use all of them to display the remote desktop.

Specify the Desktop Options as follows:

  • Display configuration: Choose which monitors will be used to display published resources. The following options are available:

    • All: All displays.

    • Primary: Your primary display. You can change the primary display as described below.

    • Selected: Choose one or several displays manually. To choose a display, select this option and click Configure. To see what number corresponds to a display, click Identify.

      Newly connected displays are detected automatically. To force Client to detect new displays, click Identify.

      To change the primary display, select the display you want to be primary and click Set primary.

  • Smart-sizing: Choose a smart sizing option. The Scale (fit to window) option scales a remote desktop to fit the connection window. The Resize (update resolution) option updates the resolution dynamically (without the need to reconnect) based on the display resolution. To disable smart sizing, select Disabled.

  • Embed desktop in launcher. Enable this option to access the published desktop inside Parallels Client.

  • Span desktop across all monitors. Enable this option to span the published desktops across all connected monitors (if you have more than one).

  • Connection bar in full screen: Choose how the connection bar should be displayed in full screen mode by default: pinned, unpinned, or hidden.
