The only way to get around this is to set a password. Think security: once the computer is accessible by RDP, anybody on the internet could possibly access it, and without a password, this would just be a question of minutes untill your computer would get hacked.

Apparently remotefx does tablet style 'absolute' input modes only, which is the source of your issue. I can't find any documentation on changing it. You may need to consider an alternate remote access mode - steam works well for me (using an nvidia GPU on the 'host' and a dinky little bay trail box on the other end). Nvidia has an option for their cards, ...

Wow, after a ton of research and failed attempts, I actually solved this! Well, mostly solved it - it is functional, but not without drawbacks. Thanks to @JourneymanGeek's answer, and in particular the post he linked to, I was able to follow the lead, and eventually discovered that amongst the many interfaces implemented by the Remote Desktop Client ...

Temviewer uses a* proprietary client server protocol where all computers (no matter if controlled or controlling another) are clients of the team viewer server which gives out the ids by itself.

Remote Desktop transmits absolute mouse movements, as a way to reduce the number of mouse movement packets that need to be sent from client to server. This arrangement works well for most windows applications (email, web browsing etc). Many 2D games are also fine with this.

How an application detect that it is running as a RemoteApp? RemoteApp sessions are started on the terminal server by RDPINIT.EXE. So the application could e.g. check if RDPINIT.EXE is the parent process. In addition the environment of a RemoteApp is different to rugular started applications. So there will be more ways to find out whether it is running as ...

The way to do this is fairly easy but I doubt you are going to like it. Just use 2 user accounts. On the first account don't set a password, the second do set one. Then hit windows key+R to bring up the run dialog and run secpol.msc, this will bring up the "Local Security Policy" screen. From that screen go to Securty Settings -> Local Policies -> ...

To the best of my knowledge, the only potential risk presented when connecting to an infected machine remotely would be if you are doing active file transfers between machines or open up some connection on your local VNC/TeamViewer machine that would allow the infected machine to actively act on your machine. An edge risk is that—let’s say—your client ...

There is a major difference between using VNC and using TeamViewer in this scenario, I will try to list some of them and I hope someone can edit and add other points that I'll probably forget to mention, but for those who only want the conclusion: Using TeamViewer is safer, but not too safe. Suggestion: I suggest you booting up from a live Linux distro ...
