Fixing a Jumpy Mouse in Windows Server 2012 R2 Remote Desktop

When remote-connecting to a Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2 computer, I have noticed that the mouse movement on the screen is often jerky and frustrating!

Jumpy Mouse 

There is a very easy fix for this. Simply edit the Mouse Properties to disable pointer shadow.

Go to: Control Panel > Hardware > Mouse

Select the Pointers tab and un-check Enable pointer shadow.

Mouse Properties 

Click Apply. You should now have smooth-as-butter mouse movement!
