Problem with contolling second computer while first is on an RDP session on newest version

Recommended Posts

I was using version 3 months ago and had no problem, as of a few days ago I updated the program and If I have Rdp off everything works as it should, mouse and keyboard both transfer.  If I go to my rdp on my main laptop, the mouse will go to the other laptop but the keyboard stays on the rdp machine.  If I minimize rdp the keyboard works on the client laptop like it should.

Fixed!  Man, customer support is faaaassst here!! Lol

Hi Tim,
Thank you for contacting Synergy Support, I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing an issue with Synergy 3 on your set up.
It appears that the Remote Desktop is keeping hold of the keyboard instead of the keyboard transitioning with the mouse cursor as expected, luckily there is an easy fix for this, could you navigate to the 'Miscellaneous' section in Synergy 3 and disable the option Take foreground window which should resolve this issue. 
Hope that helps and please let me know if there is anything else I can assist with?

I find that I have to click outside of the RDP window before the keyboard transfers over. Is that the solution support gave you or is there another trick?

Works great!  Wish I found this answer before inadvertently sharing my corporate password over Teams and Slack multiple times :-)
