The Control Bar is where advanced in-session controls can be found. To bring up the Control Bar shown below, please tap on the '^' button located in the lower right corner by default.
These 7 buttons are explained below, in order of their appearance on the menu (from left to right).
- Opens the "Hints screen" showing the available gestures.
Switch displays (or monitors)
- Provides switching to (and back) from your secondary monitor if your computer has more than one display/monitor attached.
- Provides the capability to scroll the screen.
Trackpad mode or Gesture mode
- Trackpad mode provides gesture-like mouse manipulations with left-click or right-click. This is good for opening a hidden bar like the Windows Task Bar or Mac Task Bar.
Sharp or Smooth mode
- Provides two video modes; Sharp (the default) and Smooth video rendering. Sharp mode gives clearer display quality, whereas Smooth mode gives faster streaming performance but consumes more of the computer's CPU power.
- Enables the virtual keyboard or bluetooth keyboard (if connected).
Hide Controls bar
- Hides the Control Bar.
