No Mouse?

I saw one other thread from some time ago suggesting this was a Chrome problem, but I get it in IE also.


Am I just doing something wrong here, or do you guys have an issue seeing the mouse in the "VNC Remote"?


Mine is a linux VM, if that matters (I don't have any Windows VMs so can't say if it is the same).

I have the same problem using Chrome. Haven't tried anything else.

I just started getting this issue today. Using Edge, Chrome, Firefox, and IE. Using RDC though it does work.


I can still move around just cannot see the pointer. When I go to devices I see the mouse as a 'Tablet'. I believe it believe I have a touch screen.

I'm having this issue as well using noVNC on Chrome and Firefox in all VMs. Edge doesn't even load strangely. Glad to see I'm not the only one.

Has anyone found a fix for this yet? I just upgraded my rig so I could use vms and it is so painful without a pointer

I found a small workaround with my Kali VM in Firefox.


1: Open the VNC remote. It opens in a new window. At this point I have no cursor.

2: Close this window.

3: Use the shortcut CTRL+SHIFT+N to restore to previously closed window.

The cursor appear!


The laptop I'm using has touchscreen. On other computers the VM does not have this issue.

Hope it can help someone...
