Hi,


I'm using tightVNC on a windows 10 laptop.

When I close the lid, the vnc image goes black.


Before reinstalling win10 yesterday, the vnc image would work without a problem even with the lid closed.


How can I make this work again like before?

Many thanks

TRY THIS:
  1. On the remote Windows computer, open the VNC Server dialog.
  2. Select Options from the hamburger menu.
  3. On the Expert tab, filter the list for CaptureMethod, and set the value to 1.
  4. Restart VNC Server.

Hi, thanks for this

Unfortunately these seem to be instructions for Real VNC, not TightVNC, so the instructions aren't the same.

Do you maybe know where I can change this setting for TightVNC?

Many thanks
