 Control Moust+Keys

 

Turn your Android device into a control pad for your PC. Keystrokes made on the phone will be sent to the PC, and finger movements on the touch-screen control the PC's mouse. This feature does not display the PC screen on the phone; it is intended to be used as a remote control when your PC is within view.

Perfect for controlling your home Media PC from the comfort of your couch, or your laptop or work PC while giving a presentation. Stand behind a client while providing support--you'll never have to reach for the mouse again!

Mouse Operation


Drag your finger on the screen to move the PC's mouse. When you tap the screen, a click is sent to the PC at the location of the tap. Double-tap to double-click, and long-tap to right-click.

Hold your DPAD or Trackball while dragging to drag the mouse.

Keyboard Operation

Key strokes typed on your phone are sent to your PC and typed into the active window, just as if the keys has been struck on the PC's keyboard.

Note: PhoneMyPC has recently been updated so that the keyboard behaves exactly as it does in other applications. The Shift and Alt keys are 'sticky,' meaning you can press and release them, and they will modify the next keystroke.

Soft-Key users: press Menu then select Show Keyboard to use the keyboard.

PC-Keyboard Operation

New! Press Menu, Mod. Keys to display a palette of PC modifier keys (Shift, Ctrl, Windows and Alt). You can also configure other buttons to show this palette via Settings.

Press a modifier button on the palette to turn it on, such as the Shift button in the picture at left (denoted as on by the green light in the corner), or off. When option keys are on, they will be applied to the next mouse click or keystroke on the PC, just as if you were holding down those keys while using the PC. This makes it easy to perform actions such as shift-click, and program shortcuts.

The buttons titled Opt A and Opt B are mappable to various operations via Settings. Using the default mappings, Opt A shows a menu of shortcuts to send (Copy, Paste, Save, Open, etc.), and Opt B shows a list of special keys (Escape, Function keys, etc.).

Note that the modifier palette's default behavior is to stay on the screen until you dismiss it, but via Settings, you can opt to have the palette disappear after it is used (a modifier has been applied to some action, or one of the Opt keys pressed)
