How do I exit full screen in remote desktop viewer? I press CTRL ALT ENTER but it just goes back to it.
That seems to have fixed it, I can use CTRL+ALT+Enter...Utility > Workarounds > uncheck Legacy Fullscreen Support
i`ve found hitting ctrl+alt a couple of times until the grey bar appears at the top of the screen then hittin F11 will do the trick
A one that is not cold is scarcely a one at all....
This solved the problem for me.
Un check the "Hide window manager's decorations" under the Performance tab on the RDP client
This problem is also present in Oneiric (11.10).
After installing compizconfig-settings-manager, I discovered that "Legacy Fullscreen Support" was already disabled, but the problem was still there.
After disabling/re-enabling Workarounds and doing a reboot, Ctrl-Alt-Enter correctly switches between full screen and maximized window.
I'm not sure which of these actions actually did the trick.
Ctr+Alt+Enter worked for me on 10.04 LTS
It works fine for me using 12.04 LTS.
