I am connecting from a work computer running Windows 7 Enterprise to my home computer running Windows 8.1 Pro. I am able to connect and the keyboard works just fine, but the mouse is not visible or usable in the remote system. Any ideas?

Probably any of the below suggestions would help you to resolve this case:

  1. Ensure, you Remote Desktop Connection > Local Resources settings are configured properly (Windows+r > mstsc > Local Resources tab).
  2. Unplug and plug it back
  3. Do a system restart of both the machine
  4. Isolate the issue by remote from another machine and check the functionality of the mouse
  5. Uninstall and Install the vendor's recent driver of the mouse
