When you have connected to the remote computer in ‘Full Control’ mode, all your mouse movement and keyboard actions will transfer to the remote computer. If the remote computer desktop appears inside a window (in Normal or Stretch display mode) mouse actions will transfer to the remote computer only if the mouse pointer is inside the Radmin window.

You can configure Radmin to display the remote cursor in different ways. For details, refer ro remote cursor displaying.
