Connect to a Remote PC

Clicking on a thumbnail will open the selected PC's desktop full screen and the local keyboard and mouse will now control the remote PC. Optionally a user may require a session code to authorize control of the remote PC. An on-screen indicator will display on the monitor identifying a remote connection is active. If the remote PC has multiple monitors connected, you can toggle through the remote monitors to select which monitor is locally displayed.

Active Thumbnail Sidebar

A second method to connect to a remote PC is to select it from the thumbnail sidebar. The sidebar can be displayed all the time or automatically based on mouse control. When sufficient thumbnails are available the sidebar will scroll and can be one or two columns wide.
