Forums -> UltraMon™ -> Remote Desktop Window not controlled by UltraMon

Well I searched and read any topic with Remote Desktop and I didn't see anything pertaining to our issue.

We're running UltraMon on Win 10 pc's with multiple monitors (anywhere from 3 to 5) and any other window / application we open has the two UltraMon control buttons added to the application window.

When we open a Remote Desktop session to another box, the remote desktop window does NOT have the UltraMon buttons added, just the standard Min, Max, and Close buttons.

We actually run a lot of RemoteApps this way and it's quite annoying to not be able to treat these windows the same as a "Local" application.

Is there a fix / hack/ workaround for this behavior?

The buttons can be added, but after moving the remote apps via UltraMon they could no longer be moved manually by dragging, and maximized windows couldn't get moved at all. I tested with a Windows 10 client connected to Server 2019.

If you want to give it a try, on the client go to UltraMon Options > Compatibility, then configure settings, click on Browse and select mstsc.exe from folder C:\Windows\System32, then check the option 'force window buttons' and set custom button spacing, on my system 180 pixels worked fine.
