    Hi, i want to delete a connection. I do right click -> Delete -> Yes.

    It does nothing. Why?

    Check your permissions. It might be you don’t have the right permissions in place to remove that connection file?

    I have what may be a similar issue.  I mainly use NoMachine to administer my Ubuntu media server from my general use Windows machine.  I was having various graphical and other issues with Ubuntu Gnome 16.04.3 and NoMachine, so I rebuilt the system first with Ubuntu 17.10, and then finally with Ubuntu Budgie 17.10.  Most of my graphical issues went away, but now I see several entries for my old installs from my NoMachine client on the Windows box.  In the past 24 hours, I’ve had 3 different Ubuntu installs on the same hardware, with NoMachine installed on each of them for testing. When my client opens on Windows, I see all 3.  They all seem to work, and after some time, the two “phantom” listings seem to go away, but when I started looking for a way to delete these extraneous connections, there doesn’t seem to be a way.  Where could the information about my old installs come from?

    @jaw1959 what you are seeing is normal in that upon opening the client it will show you records of what you recently connected to, and if on a local network, it will take a few moments to update to show you exactly what is available on that LAN (which in your case is just one server). In fact, you notice that two disappear – that’s because the client now sees an updated situation.

    If you don’t want to wait (again, how long this takes depends on your LAN), you can remove the cache, which on Windows is here: %USERPROFILE%\.nx\cache 🙂
