Virtual Displays

Virtual Displays for Fluid lets you extend your remote session beyond the physical limits of your host's displays. You can now create up to 4 virtual displays during a remote session (see below for limitations). 

Virtual displays support arbitrary resolutions and can match your local display layout perfectly. This is perfect for working with multiple monitors without having to worry about how many monitors are attached to the remote host. Virtual Monitors also support Retina mode for extra clarity! 

To get started: 

Connect to your machine, click Displays -> Virtual Monitor and select the number of virtual displays to use. Once virtual displays are engaged Jump will replace the host's physical monitors with virtual monitors. You can resize virtual monitors by simply resizing your local Jump Desktop windows.

Requirements:

Virtual Monitor support currently works when connecting from a Mac or Windows to a Windows 10 or macOS 10.14+ machine. A Teams Enterprise subscription is required to enable 2 or more virtual monitors.

This works with a physical mouse too!
  • New Mouse Pointer Lock for iPadOS 14+ when using a physical mouse: This new feature makes it easier to use a physical mouse. It lets you lock the mouse pointer so that it always remains inside the remote screen. This way you don't have to worry about accidentally invoking the home screen bar or clicking on iPad's native UI buttons. To start using this feature open up Jump Desktop -> Settings -> Mouse and Gestures -> Lock Mouse Pointer -> ON. Quickly toggle this feature from the physical keyboard using the following shortcut: Cmd + Shift + P.
  • Up to 2X Performance improvements for Fluid on newer iOS devices.
