    Hello @Zakeeee

    Thank you for your message.

    This can be triggered by the fast movements you are doing and the little latency that occurs during your remote session.
    I'd recommend you to select Optimize quality in the tab View.

    Furthermore, it can also be that your mouse setting on the remote computer are causing this.

    This might reduce the size of the mouse's tail. :-)

    I hope this could help. If not, do not hesitate to ask your questions here.
