Can't click mouse in vmware 11

Cant click in Vmware workstation 11 on Windows 10.  This vm was working on Win 7, and I had to upgrade to 10.  I have it running in compat mode for 7.  Any assistance is appreciated.
Thank you,
Mark

Try this

Right click on vmware workstation icon --> properties --> compatibility tab --> under settings Enable "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings"

Then open vmworkstation and see any hope

Add/Remove Programs ?

That is a very old version of VMware Workstation (born before Windows 10 came out).  Try a newer version of VMware and of course, install / upgrade the tools when you upgraded VMware.

If you upgraded your Windows 7 machine to Windows 10, that may have brought along legacy problems as well. Windows 7 is no longer a good candidate to upgrade - too old.
