vSphere Client Console Does Not Display Full Screen

While opening a console for any virtual machine from one particular workstation, the console display is not sized correctly.

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 the settings
  5. Reload the vSphere Client.

The console session should populate the full screen.
