There are a couple of ways...
I used to reduce the resolution to make it a bit smaller than my laptop monitor, then you have two windows. The only annoying thing is that the keyboard shortcuts can act weird depending where the focus is.

Another option is, if you have more than one monitor, to set the first RDP to use all monitors and the second one to use only one monitor.

Sharing information / files from one to the other one, can still be a PITA.

Oh, btw. There was (not sure if still is) a very annoying (and even dangerous) bug back then. Multiple users RDPing in a server would get cross-clipboard. That means, the text I copied could be pasted by you in an editor. That provoked a couple of "funny" situations in our routinary work.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
