for those who can't seem to get it to work by editing the .rdp file with
For me it didnt work for me originally as my monitor1 was to the right of monitor2. As soon as i swapped cables and changed the display settings so monitor1 was situated to the left of monitor2 , it worked like a charm!
hopefully this helps others

Changing the RDP file is fine, but if you are using RDPweb, that is impratical for the normal user. Like many have said, if you have more than two monitors limiting the number of monitors on the RDS side does nothing. You either get 1, or it uses them all. Other clients allow you to do this, you'd think the native MS client would too.
I hope i am helping more than obstructing a better concept on your end.
When I run "mstsc /l" I don't get a list of my monitors. I get the MSTSC usage dialog box. I also can't get the selectmonitors:i:0,1 to work no matter what I try.

Would love to be able to get the text output from 'mstsc /l' instead of it showing in an alert.
That got evident after Feb. 4, when Google reported that its voice partner would be coming to Nest Secure. The mouthpiece has never been recorded on Nest Secure's specialized specifications, and was not broadcasted from Google.

Is there a way to get the output of mstsc /l as text? The monitor numbers returned by mstsc /l may change after a reboot or resume from sleep. If I were able to get the mstsc /l output as text I could use a script to update the .rdp file to match the actual monitor layout.
What about using all the monitors for RDP session? I have 3 monitors and my laptop all connected but when i try to connect to the RDP session, it just lets me have 1 monitor under RDP and the rest on the local. I tried to use the use multimon:i:1 selectedmonitors:s:x,y,z and it just lets me use 2 monitors for RDP and one for my local BUT I have to closed the lid of my laptop so I could have 3 monitors working. am I doing something wrong? Thanks for your help in advance!

I think it's good, but I think it's not the way (that would work best)
How about a setting asking for the amount of displays and the size (same for all of them) for the virtual machine? On certain clients (not iOS, of course), multiple windows (of the desktop) would pop up and you can just drag them around in the local machine (such as putting one on each of the 8 display of yours).
It might be somewhat more convenient (and probable).
But why? I view RD as a ... it's almost social-media like, a small window displaying contents from another place. I have no intention of using multiple screens for the remote machine. Although, the desktop sure feels small at times.
I have discovered that is is possible to get a selective multi-screen no-border setup by editing the rdp file with a text editor. The only 2 lines that matter are:
where x,y,z are the display numbers as shown in the display settings. The index starts at 0 so subtract 1 from the display number. If these lines do not exist, then add them. x,y,z,etc is of optional length, like for only 2 monitors something like selectedmonitors:s:0,1 works.
This is a little tricky and there are some rules to follow to make this work.
1. One screen has to be your primary display.
2. All screens used for the rdp have to be adjacent(connected to each other(border-to-border)) with no gaps.
3. The remote machine obviously must allow multi-monitor support in group policy.

Windows 10 enterprise
4 1920x1080 screens in extended desktop landscape orientation arranged in 2x2 grid.

selectedmonitors:s:x,y doesn't work for me nor does group policy limit number of monitors

I am desperate...I can only get RDP to work on ONE monitor or all EIGHT of mine...can't pick and choose...any suggestions? I've tried everything but stripping naked and cluck like a chicken around a campfire...SOOO FRUSTRATED!
