vSphere Client Console Does Not Display Full Screen

So, while opening a console for any virtual machine from one particular workstation, the console display is not sized correctly. Below is the screenshot of the display.


This was seen on only one machine, any user sessions and a reinstall of vSphere Client did not help to resolve this. And this was seen on a Windows 10 machine.

To resolve this, you will have to disable Display Scaling.

1. Right click the vSphere Client icon and select Properties
2. Click Compatibility
3. Check box, Disable display scaling on high DPI Settings.
4. Apply Settings
5. Reload the vSphere Client session.

Now, the console session should populate the full screen.

Hope this helps.
