NVIDIA can't fix cursor offset/alignment issues with remote desktop via GeForce & GameStream for now (workarounds inside)

NVIDIA is a prominent name in the world of Gaming as millions of people use its GPUs and other products for numerous purposes.

However, NVIDIA users have been facing some problems for quite some time which is spoiling their experience.

As per multiple reports, NVIDIA users have been experiencing issues where the cursor is out of alignment or offset.

Basically, users have been noticing that the position of the cursor is different from where the clicks are being registered.

These cursor offset or alignment issues occur when remote desktop is used via the NVIDIA GeForce Experience, GameStream, Moonlight.

Also, reports clearly outline that these issues have been around after updating the GeForce Game Ready driver from version 446.14.

The NVIDIA driver version 446.14 is over a year old but users are having to rollback to this version because of the aforementioned cursor problem.

Another workaround is to set the Windows display scaling setting to the default/recommended one before connecting to GameStream or Moonlight.


On the other hand, NVIDIA has been unable to reproduce these problems at their hand, hence, they cannot resolve them for the time being.

It is possible that they might be able to reproduce the same issues and a resolution may arrive in the future.

However, this is still based on speculation and nothing is confirmed until the vendor can replicate these cursor problems.


That said, we will report back with more details as and when new information becomes available so stay tuned.
