Host version: I just download it today for a Windows 10 PC
Viewer: I just download it today for an Android 7.0 tablet (Archos)

How can I use the touch screen of my tablet when viewing PC screens?
Thank you.

Hello Jack,

Thank you for your message.

Could you please clarify what exactly you mean by using the touch screen? Currently, the mobile client allows you to move the remote mouse pointer and send keystrokes.

Hello Conrad,
Thank you for your prompt answer.
With using the "touch screen" of my Android tablet I mean the possibility to:
Tap to click, tab and hold to click right, drag, and so on, without using the mouse and without seeing the mouse pointer.
Here an example of usage:
I have on my Windows PC a MS Access application. MS Access can't run on Android. However with a remote utility I can visualise this application on my Android tablet. And I want to tab on buttons of the MS Access program without moving a mouse.
[censored] provides this functionality; there is an on/off setting for "Show remote cursor". When I chose "off", I can tab directly to activate a button...

Hello Jack,

I see. But unfortunately, so far this feature is not available. We will add it to our list of suggestions.
