Issues with Synergy 1.7.6 and Remote Desktop on Windows 10

3 posts in this topic

When starting my computer and possibly when waking from sleep, Synergy is causing issues with key combinations in remote desktop. After remoting into a computer and hitting either the windows key or Alt-tab keys for example, the keys are not passed to the remote desktop session and are done locally. Regular typing works fine. After restarting the Synergy windows service, the key combinations work correctly in my remote desktop session.

I'm seeing the same thing. The Windows key combinations are executed on the local machine, not the remote host. Restarting Synergy and my remote session also fixed the issue for me.

It appears this might be an issue with other applications and key combinations as well. While playing a game through Steam and trying to use the "Shift + Tab" combination to use the Steam overlay, it wouldn't show up until I restarted the Synergy service.

Same thing here, I have been seeing the problem for a while, even pre 1.7.6.
