Hi,
recently I have upgraded my monitor to 4K and now running on 3840x2160 resolution with 200% zoom. When connected on RDP full screen I encounter huge font mismatch + alignement problems. As per images below.
I have tried different tricks mentioned in viewtopic.php?t=12283 but none of these helped.

From my understanding, this is most likely a result of the session itself. Have you tried ending the remote session and then trying again? Sometimes disconnecting and reconnecting solves these issues.

The size of the screen can be adjusted via the properties or settings of the Remote Desktop Connection Manager. You can change the settings of Remote Desktop Connection Manager that will let the screen adjust according to the client’s screen. There is an option called Same as client area which will automatically adjust the screen.

Hi Britney,
Remote Desktop manager aka RDCMan just have been sent to EOL by Microsoft due to security risks related to it. The issues I'm having are encountered via Windows native client - mtsc which is current go-to recommendation for logging into the servers. And only with Sapien Powershell Studio and couple other 3rd party tools. Native ISE work like a charm

I'm not able to post external links but all articles states same and dates March 2020:
"
Microsoft announced this week that has deprecated Remote Desktop Connection Manager (RDCMan) due to security concerns.
"

Form MS themselves:
"
More information
We're increasing our investments in virtualization and remote desktops, such as Windows Virtual Desktop and RDS on Microsoft Azure.

RDCMan is a client that is widely used to manage multiple remote desktop connections because it's a convenient option. However, RDCMan has not kept pace with the level of advanced technology that we're pursuing.

Instead, we have two great supported client options: MSTSC and Universal Client for Windows 10. These clients offer increased security, and they are a key part of our engineering roadmap moving forward. In the future, you can expect even more capabilities, such as the ability to better manage multiple connections.
"

Is there any fix for mstsc ?

Are you still having issues with this? Other than updating the display resolution on either you local or remote machine to match the other or restarting the connection (logging off and logging back on), there is not much help I can provide. This issue has to do with your remote session, which is not something I can replicate.
