This article presents typical customer use cases and associated configuration options, requirements, limitations, and recommendations for displaying sessions on high resolution monitors.

Multiple or single high resolution monitors connected to Windows endpoint machines can result in published apps & desktop sessions displaying at resolutions that are not optimal for the user, as well as text and icons sizes in desktop sessions that are not optimal for the user.
