The web console is intended as an emergency method to access your droplet should you be unable to access it via ssh. As such, it is not optimized for interaction with the mouse or GUI applications or environments. If you want to run a desktop environment on your droplet we recommend running a VNC service within your droplet. This tutorial will assist you in setting this up.
