For some reason I am not able perform certain system-level functions on my remote Mac. The ones I've noticed so far are...
When trying to access the hidden Library folder (holding the alt/option key when viewing the "Go" menu in Finder). If I open the Go menu, then press the alt/option key, nothing happens...but then when I release the key, the menu flashes for a split second like it's trying to show the Library folder. Oddly, if I hold the alt/option key before opening the Go menu, it works fine and the Library folder is revealed.
A little more concerning though... if I install an app or enable a feature that requires additional permission via Security & Privacy in System preferences, I'm not able to complete the authorization. For example, if I enable a feature in an app that requires it to load an extension --and Mac Security blocks that extension-- I then have to go into Security & Privacy in the System Settings and click the "Allow" button to unblock it. The problem is that when I click the "Allow" button, nothing happens. The button flickers briefly but doesn't actually engage. The only way I can get it to accept my click is if I physically do it on that computer with it's own mouse.
I imagine this issue affects other system features, these are just the only two I've run into so far.
