Nomachine – FreeNX fullscreen switching

Something that was not obvious to me when using NX client was the ability to get out of fullscreen. I initially thought that they just hadn’t implemented it as yet.. but we are now on version 3 and I thought that the mere oversight should have been fixed by now.

Well, I don’t know if it has always been there but there’s two ways to switch between the remote desktop session and your local session when using NX

You can switch between full-screen and your original desktop by clicking on the ‘Magic Pixel’ on the top-right corner of your screen. Just move to the top right corner of the screen and left-click.

If, for any reason, your remote session is not responding, you can switch by pressing the sequence ctrl+alt+shift+esc.

Hope this helps..
