The VNC Viewer - Options dialog allows you to configure VNC Viewer while a connection is in progress:
(In this picture, the dialog is in Advanced mode.)
Note: Some VNC Viewer options must be configured before you connect. For more information, see Configuring VNC Viewer before you connect.
To open the VNC Viewer - Options dialog, click the Options toolbar button, or select Options from the shortcut menu. (If the VNC Viewer toolbar or shortcut menu are not accessible, see Changing appearance and behavior.)
The first time you open this dialog, it opens in Basic mode, and only one tab is available, containing the most common options. Click the Advanced button in the bottom left corner to switch to Advanced mode and see all the tabs in the example above. Note that the Expert tab is recommended for expert users only.
By default, any changes you make apply both to the current connection and to all future connections to any host computer. To apply changes just to the current connection, turn off Use these settings for all new connections first.
Many of the options in this dialog are explained in the remainder of this chapter.
