Possible automatically open both monitors in fullscreen?

I have saved a remote computer that has two monitors. I also have two monitors, identical set up on client. When I connect to the computer I have to:

1. Click view, then monitor 2, it will open in full screen.
2. I have to exit full screen, then move window to the second monitor.
3. Then I have to click the icon to make it fullscreen.

Is there no way I can just save the setup, so that it automatically opens both monitors, and makes both full screen?

Re: Possible automatically open both monitors in fullscreen?

Hello @JamesT

Thank you for your message.

Unfortunately, there is no option that saves settings for future connections.

Using the TeamViewer toolbar is the only way to set it up.

I thank you in advance for your understanding.

Cheers,

Jean

Re: Possible automatically open both monitors in fullscreen?

I have been having the same issue for years. Any updates on this matter? Are there any plans to improve the situation?

It's really frustrating to do exactly the same steps each and every time I connect to the remote computer. Why won't Teamviewer remember the view layout from the last connection and reuse that?

OR: at least Teamviewer could open the second remote monitor in the second local monitor instead of opening it on top of the first one (step 1 from original post - we wouldn't have to do steps 2-3 anymore then). This should be relatively easy to implement. And if it's considered confusing/dangerous/etc UX wise for some then make it as an option off by default.

Same question / feature request here. I imagine with more and more people working remotely this could save a lot of time.

Re: Possible automatically open both monitors in fullscreen?

James has worded his question perfectly.

I would have thought the elimination of repetitive steps would be a primary goal of almost any software. 

Like a batch file/replay.

Why has this not been included as a new feature?
