Check if there's any settings about remote resources

I haven't used Chrome RDP feature yet and I hope this is helpful.
I'll see if I can reproduce the issue

Akinsd,
Once you start using Chrome remote desktop, you will notice it does all except show the remote cursor.
The page you sent me does not mention anything about the remote cursor.
Please let me know the results of your testing with Chrome remote desktop

How are you connecting to Chrome RD?  I've tested with my phone connecting to my laptop and I see the remote mouse cursor...

HI Rob,
I am connecting from a win 7 Toshiba laptop, most of the time but also from desktop win7 pcs.
I never get to see the remote cursor....
I think maybe the Android versión has that solved... but from win7 remoting win7 i never get to see the cursor.

I was able to see remote cursor when I installed it
See attached picture.

Your cursor is the remote cursor also. If that's where the confusion is from. I had both laptops right next to each other and could see the cursor of the remote computer moving when I moved the cursor on the computer I'm connecting from.

The 1st image is from a screen shot which does not show the cursor.
2nd image is a picture from my phone to show the cursor.

In essense, your cursor merges with the remote cursor when you're connected.
I hope this helps
