Touchscreen Controls

When you connect to your desktop, you will see the upper left corner of your desktop (primary monitor). It is displayed at a 1:1 pixel scale; you can magnify this by spreading your fingers on the iPhone screen. You cannot compress the image as the iPhone firmware is not fast at re-rendering large images and the transfer time to your iPhone is significantly longer. You can pan around the screen simply by dragging your finger as you normally would on a website.

You control your PC by tapping or sliding with your fingers on the iPhone or iPod touch touchscreen. To use your fingers as a mouse, see the Mouse List, with a description of the Pointers you see. To bring up a Toolbar, tap with two fingers together at the spot you want to work on. See Toolbars. For other controls, such as scrolling or zooming or page up/down, see Tools*Keys*Zooms.

See Logout and Exit for how to close your remote connection.

See Touchscreen FAQ for answers to user questions about how to do specific tasks.

The Help button on the PC2Me Plus main screen takes you to Quick Start with a Desktop Control Help walkthrough of touchscreen controls.
