The Alt-Tab combination for switching between application windows is the one I use commonly. The Win-Ctrl-arrow key combination for switching between virtual desktops is essential for my workflow. Those are the key combinations I use most commonly, excluding common shortcuts like Ctrl-A and Ctrl-C.
Just to clarify, with ‘show remote cursor’ and ‘mouse grab’ both on, I get one big cursor and one small cursor. With ‘show remote cursor’ on and ‘mouse grab’ off, I get two small cursors, never enlarging. With ‘show remote cursor’ off and ‘mouse grab’ on, I get one large cursor. With both options off, I get one small cursor.
I have been using it more heavily since turning off the pointer grab, so I have triple checked. I turned mouse grab back on and the cursor immediately slowed down and became big on some motions, mostly rapid ones, but sometimes slow ones. Turning it back off makes the cursor move smoothly and consistently again. When small, the cursor is completely white. When big, it has a black interior.
Having ‘show remote cursor’ and ‘mouse grab’ both on has one big cursor, apparently the local one, and one small one, the remote one, which never enlarges. It seems to happen when the remote cursor falls behind the local cursor. With ‘mouse grab’ turned off, when the local and remote cursors separate, the local cursor remains small, unlike with ‘mouse grab’ on.
I’m having the same cursor problem on version 7.6.2. I’m using a MacBook Air set locally at 1680 x 1050 resolution. The remote system is running Windows 10 at a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and I use fullscreen but no scaling at either end. The remote system is using a virtual display. The remote cursor is set to not be displayed. When I first connect, the local cursor is at its normal size, but sometimes when I move the cursor, the local cursor becomes huge, identically to the screen shots above. When that happens, the cursor motion slows to a crawl and accurate clicking becomes very difficult.
