The scaling mode and resolution of the Remote Desktop machine are saved in the
Default.rdp file, located in the
Documents folder. When you initiate a RDP session, the UIAutomation package reads the scaling mode and resolution from the
Default.rdp file, even if the RDP session is initiated from a
.rdp file with different settings.
As such, initiating an RDP session from a
.rdp file with the Smart-Scaling scaling mode saved, UI element selection can appear offset. It is recommended to use the
Default.rdp file at all times.
After you change the resolution scaling on the Remote Desktop machine, UI element detection can appear offset. In this case you need to restart your RDP connection.
The Remote Desktop Protocol does not feature session reliability. This means that whenever the connection between the client and the Remote Desktop machine is lost, any running process fails. It is currently recommended to execute processes over RDP only on reliable network connections.
