What’s New?

Added Mouse Controls

  • Remote Support iOS technicians will now see a transparent mouse image on their device’s screen that follows their mouse on the image of the customer’s computer. This enables technicians to easily left-click or right-click on the customer’s computer by selecting an item, then left or right-clicking on their own mouse.
