The screen(s) on the remote device is scaled to match the height of your (admin) browser window, while allowing the width to extend beyond your browser window’s width. A horizontal scrollbar appears and can be used to scroll across the width of the remote device’s screen.
The screen(s) on the remote device is displayed at its native resolution. Depending on the size, you might be presented with both horizontal and vertical scroll bars.
This option allows you to use a slider to manually increase the zoom level. Both horizontal and vertical scroll bars are available.
