thanks for trying that out and providing feedback.

Indeed we seem to have a bug there; filing as such.  However, what
will work is to click on the downward-pointing triangle in the lower
right of a session tile (those white things on the right).


Steps to reproduce:
1) Start x2goclient.exe
2) Click on "Session", select "Session Management"
  (Alternatively, press Ctrl+E)
3) Click on a session name

Expected result:
Buttons "Session preferences", "Delete Session", "Create Session Icon
on Desktop" become available

Actual result:
Buttons remain greyed out

Kind Regards,
