I have read many articles on this subject, but I'm still having a hard time. I have a dual monitor setup where the secondary monitor is on top of the primary. (not to the left or right of the primary). I just want RDPs to open on the top monitor. I've tried many different settings editing the winposstr entry of the RDP file with notepad, but I just can't seem to get it working.


For the time being/testing purposes, I have both monitors set to 1024 X 768. Normally, the primary (lower) screen is set to 1280 X 800, and the secondary (upper) screen is set to 1280 X 1024.


I'm using Win 10 64 bit, but I am using an older version of RDP (5.2.3790.0) The newest version is giving the same results. I am able to make a session open to the left or right, but not above.

From what I've read, the last 4 numbers of winposstr are the one's that control where the window goes. Any help is appreciated.
