<p>You can specify any display resolution (rdesktop window size) you
want in the rdp-mime.pl script. The default is 1280x1024 but it
doesn't have to be one of the "normal" ones. And you can switch back
and forth between sizes by just starting a new rdesktop with different
arguments and "grabbing" the rlogin session away from the previous
one. </p>
<p>But once an rdesktop is started up, its display resolution is
fixed. If you make it smaller than the previous one, Windows will
push your windows around to fit in the smaller space. </p>
