Solved Response to right side of laptop screen not working

October 14, 2019 at 01:59:17
Specs: Windows 10
I had same problem - couldn't click on right side of screen. I could right click though, but could only see "copy Ctrl + C" if i right clicked. I ended a few tasks on task manager, and when i ended a program called Team Viewer the problem disappeared. Team viewer is a program which allows me to let someone share my screen to control my computer. I hadn't used the program for 2 weeks though and was not using it at the time. But maybe someone was using it to hack my computer? I don't know. I deleted the program entirely to be safe.

Seldom wise - except in emergencies- to allow anyone to have access and control your computer - remotely.

Always disable when not required - as in exit from - any such remote access software; and ensure it is no-longer active having done so,

Usually (at least as I best I recall) Remote Access is disabled at logoff of the computer (by you in this case); or you and/or the other party disconnecting from that service; or when you shut down/power down the computer?

It appears you have solved the problem by disabling and then uninstalling the program.
If everything works then it is solved.
I hope you completely trust the person on the other end of the remote connection as in a good trusted friend or a professional tech support that you paid for the service.
It is always advisable to uninstall remote software when not being used. I think Team Viewer as a non-professional recipient of support through their program has the non-installed temporary version you download when needed. I may be wrong on this as I have had limited experience with it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

✔ Best Answer
Team Viewer itself is a very safe program to use and there is no need to un-install it if you think you may use it in the future.

They have a professional version that I have used several times with different vendors. They also offer a free version for home use.

In both versions you have to set up a session when you are ready to have someone remote in. This includes generating an alphanumeric code which must be sent to the person who wants to remotely connect. Without this code, there is no way the remote user can access your system.

When you are done with the session you click the disconnect button and all connections are broken. You cannot reuse the generated code to log in again, a new code must be created every time you start a new session.
