I'm using Microsoft's Remote Desktop Client v18.104.22.16833 to connect to a Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Session Host (Terminal) Server. I want to force the RDP session to display in Portrait mode only, regardless of the orientation of my Android phone. My RDP session is established in Landscape mode and nothing I have done changes this.
What I've tried:
- Disabling (and enabling) auto-rotation in Android Settings. Despite this setting, the RDP session never displays in Portrait mode, even if I rotate the phone
- Searched the Remote Desktop Client app for settings to control rotation
- Searched the Internet for appropriate terms. I found this post in which a commenter complains:
The MS-ified version [of the RDP app] locks you into portrait mode.
So I am hopeful this is possible.
I am using a Cubot X6 phone running Android v4.2.2
