Question

VNC console connection doesn't allow mouse to reach Bottom or Righ-hand side of window

I’ve tried Internet Explorer and Firefox and both renders the mouse the same way.

How to access VNC with full Mouse support control?

Thanks, Kevin.

Uh, did anyone ever come up with a solution to this? The only ‘answer’ is actually someone adding a comment but put it in the wrong place and should be moved/deleted.

Using the browser-based console vnc access, the mouse lines up pretty accurately in the top-left but the further down and/or right you move the cursor, the more the ‘real’ mouse leaves the vnc mouse behind. Eventually, you end up with the inability to use anything on the bottom of the screen like the dock, scrollbars, etc.

I’m using latest Chrome on Windows 10 @ 2560x1440.

Console for my Droplet

sorry Really gave up on it on only use ssh now… I’ll play around with the resolution and give it a try.

Hi Kevin,

What resolution is the screen on the computer you’re using to access the console? Also, is this the console for your Droplet, or are you running VNC software outside of our site?

Hello there,

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 or Set Up a Remote Desktop with X2Go within your droplet.
