The Experience node in the Policy Properties dialog allows you to tweak connection speed and compression.


Choose your connection speed to optimize performance: Choose a connection type according to your situation and then select experience options you want enabled. If you are connecting to a remote server on a local network that runs at 100 Mbps or higher, it is usually safe to have all of the experience options enabled. If you choose Detect connection quality automatically, the experience options will be enabled by default, but some may be dynamically disabled depending on the actual connection speed.

Enhance windows move/size: Enable this option if your users experience graphics artifacts (dark squares) while moving or resizing a remote application window on their desktops. The issue may manifest itself when a remote application is hosted on a Windows Server 2016, 2019 or 2022 and when the Show contents of window while dragging option is enabled. The issue does not appear with any other versions of Windows.


It is recommended to enable compression to have a more efficient connection. The available compression options are described below.

Enable RDP Compression: Enables compression for RDP connections.

Universal printing compression policy: The compression type should be selected based on your environment specifics. You can choose from the following options:

  • Compression disabled. No compression is used.

  • Best speed (uses less CPU). Compression is optimized for best speed.

  • Best size (uses less network traffic). Compression is optimized to save network traffic.

  • Based on connection speed. The faster the connection speed, the lower compression level and the minimum data size to compress are used.

Universal scanning compression policy: This drop-down list has the same options as the universal printing compression above. Select the compression type based on your environment specifics.
