  • Tap on the '^' button located in the lower right corner during a connected session.



These functions are explained below in order of their appearance on the menu (from left to right). 


  • Disconnects the current session and goes back to the list of computers.


  • Open the Hints screen for Gestures.

Lock orientation

  • Provides the capability to lock or unlock the orientation to either Portrait or Landscape.


  • Provides the capability to scroll the screen.

Trackpad mode

  • Trackpad mode provides to the user gestures that simulate mouse manipulations with left-click or right-click.  It's good to open the hidden bar like Windows Task Bar or Mac Task Bar.

Switch Display

Sharp or Smooth
