From there you just need to tap with your finger on the various functions. For example, touch the keyboard icon on your phone to activate the phone as a keyboard, or tap on the application icon to get a list of installed software.

You can also move your finger across the phone screen, and tap the touch the screen once or twice to perform left or right clicks, or you can scroll with two fingers. You can launch a variety of software via the phone that are related to programs pinned to the taskbar in Windows.

Some features require you to buy Remote Mouse, for them to act via the phone. This includes control of audio and video.
