Is this possible? Remote control that disables mouse for the computer I'm controlling the computer?

Ok so my daughter might be on the computer and I need to grab a file while I'm at work away from the computer. I cant seem to figure out where a setting might be that lets me control the computer while I am away from it, while locking out my daughter so she has to wait till I am done with the computer. She likes to close out of the program I am trying to get to while I am on. (she's playing roblox and doesn't want to wait 1 minute ) Example, disabling her (the home main computer) mouse while i am using it. Anythought would be great! I did a bunch of searching nothing seem to be asked like this or I couldn't find the right wording! Cheers David

Hi djtuner13,

Not sure if I read this correctly but you can disable their PC. If you go to "Actions">"Disable Remote Input" this should prevent them from being able to conrtol the PC while that box is ticked.

I might be wrong but give it a go!

Yeahhh! Thank you! I never thought about checking the setting from my work computer thank you, I thought I had to allow it in preferences/options first! Your a wizard!
