    I’m new to NoMachine.

    I’ve gotten it to work just fine across my LAN and over the internet through my firewall.

    It works great on my Raspberry Pi. On my Windows 10 Machine it seems to work fine except none of the windows display remotely. I can see the desktop and taskbar just fine but no application windows show. I’ve tested this on my raspberry pi and phone as clients. I’ve tried disabling hardware acceleration or acceleration for display processing (not both disabled at the same time).

    I’m not sure what else I can try to get the application windows to show up. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

    Hi leprechaun,

    I’ve gotten it to work just fine across my LAN and over the internet through my firewall.

    Great 🙂

    From what you’ve written I understand that connecting to a Raspberry device, everything is working well. But when connecting from a Raspberry device or smartphone with the NoMachine mobile app to your Windows 10, you cannot see applications windows. You see only the desktop.  Right?

    On my Windows 10 Machine it seems to work fine except none of the windows display remotely.

    What applications are actually running there? I mean, if I was physically in front of the Windows PC , what applications would be open?

    Is the Windows PC with multi-monitors? If so, take a look at this tutorial: https://www.nomachine.com/switching-the-view-between-multi-monitors-during-a-remote-desktop-session.

    Thank you very much!

    That solved it. I have two monitors, I use the second for another system but have it as input for my windows machine. I don’t even think of my system and dual monitor. Windows 10 was defaulting to that 2nd monitor, not my main monitor.
