DF taskbars non-interactable through VNC if remote host is Windows 10

Hi,

I have the following problem I couldn't find any solution for.
If connected through VNC to a remote computer running Windows 10, DF taskbars are visible (updated if there are changes, tasks and icons visible, etc) but completely non-interactable, don't react to either left or right click on any part (including tasks, icons, start menu button and system tray).
- Windows built-in taskbars are working as intended, but DF taskbars are not.
- This happens if remote host is Windows 10 - the problem was not present with Windows 7.
- Local OS doesn't matter, behavior is the same.
- Seems to be independent of VNC application. Tried with TightVNC and UltraVNC.

Is there any possible config/workaround for this?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Is VNC running as a Windows service, or just a process running under your current user account?

Tried both methods, doesn't make a difference.

Is your logged in Windows account a local admin or a standard user?

It's admin.

If you run Process Explorer and add the "Integrity Level" column, does the Integrity Level for your VNC server show as Medium or High?

... and as I went to test this setting, it just started working all of a sudden, without me doing or changing anything, after not working for years...
Many thanks for the tips though.
Please keep this thread open for a little while if possible, so in case it happens again I can report back here.

Cheers!
