    I have NoMachine (free version) running on my work PC (Ubuntu 18.04), and I access the PC at home on my Windows 10 laptop using NoMachine Enterprise Client (6.9.2). I have the screen resolutions of the two PCs the same and will put NoMachine Client into full screen mode on Windows 10 when I’m actually doing work. But sometimes I’m just waiting for a compile to finish and will take the window out of full screen mode. In this case I’ll position the window so that I can see when the compiles is done. But if I accidentally hover the mouse over the window the window positioning will change/scroll.

    Is there any way to prevent a non-full screen window (and/or non-focused window) from scrolling as the mouse travels above it?

    Second unrelated question: My work PC has dual displays and I’m able to conveniently switch between them using hotkeys. But if I was to get a dual display setup at home instead of just using my laptop would the NoMachine client be able to mimic the two displays by having display #1 of work PC on display #1 of home PC and display #2 of work PC on display #2 of home PC?

    You could try to edit the file %USERPROFILE%\.nx\config\player.cfg and reduce the value of the setting “Automatic viewport scrolling sensitive area size”. If you set it to 0, the automatic scrolling will be disabled.
    We’ll start an analysis of your report to evaluate whether we need to completely prevent the automatic scrolling for an inactive window, or offer a new configuration key.

    If your client and server monitors layout and size will be the same, you will just need to toggle the fullscreen mode to have a perfect remote desktop match. If instead you will have different sizes or layout, the following feature request will give more freedom by allowing to place windows where you prefer:

    Thanks for the very helpful reply! The player.cfg change did the trick.

    Re: https://www.nomachine.com/FR10N03220, that feature request sounds incredibly useful. Any idea when it’s expected? I see it was originally requested in 2016 so hopefully it happens at some point.

    That feature is one of those on top of our priorities, we can’t give an exact date yet, but we’ll do our best to include it in one of our next releases.
