    Since the 7.1.13 upgrade I’m plagued with out of focus servers displays where the mouse points somewhere else so I can’t click on anything. This doesn’t happen every time but sometimes it requires closing the server window and retrying a dozen times before getting lucky. My client is Win7 and servers are Linux Mint 20.1 with Nvidia 1080 Ti GPUs and the 460.39 driver.

    Also, it’s inefficient that one must back out 3 steps to end editing display settings. Please add a Done button.

    Also, I dislike the way the client window with all the servers displayed stays open and it spawns a new window to access a server. I can see how someone in tech support might like it that way but I often only need to access a single server. Please make it an option to use classic style or never closing style.

    We aren’t aware of out-of-focus issues or problems with clicking when connecting to Linux Mint. Although screenshots would help to understand what the actual problem is that you are encountering. What’s the Window Manager you are using? I take it this is the free version installed on the Linux side (you didn’t say).

    Strange, if something isn’t working with NoMachine, it would be showing this strange behaviour all of the time, not once every dozen or so times. I doubt that it is being caused by the GPU. So, clears steps to reproduce the problem (as well the as the screenshots already mentioned) would be useful to help us understand better.

    You can actually remove one step by clicking the small settings icons (which can be considered shortcuts) at the bottom of the menu (it’s the one on the far right) and this will take you directly to “Change settings”. Therefore it takes 2 steps, and not three. Designing menus and how it impacts usability is not as simple as it might seem and adding a Done button (something which we did of course already consider) proved not to be the best solution to coming out of the menu.

    The multi-window player is one of the elements that make up the new design of the UI.  This isn’t going to change. What you can do is place a connection shortcut on your desktop (or wherever you like) and by double-clicking you will open the session without the main window getting in the way. To create the shortcut, go to the folder where NoMachine connection files are store (by default on Windows it’s in Documents\NoMachine), right click the session file, click ‘New’ and select ‘Shortcut’.
