At the bottom of the screen, you'll see a "Not Connected" badge. Tap this badge.
If you're using the Paid version, the app tries to connect to PC automatically at the app startup (if Quick Connect is enabled from user settings). Be sure Win10 Controller Server app is running on your PC to auto connect. It tries to connect to your PC automatically.
Or you can use the "Manual Connection" screen. It will ask you the local IP of your PC, so it will communicate through your PC by this local IP. Your local IP address is displayed on the Win10 Controller Server app's main screen.
When the connection established, it will redirect you to the main screen and the a Connection Success tip will be displayed . Now you can move your finger over the screen and see if the mouse cursor on your PC is moving too.
Some of most used mouse functions are below. Please note that you can always change most of these actions from the Win10 Controller Server app's settings window. Move: Just move your finger over this area Left Click: Tap with one finger once Right Click: Tap with two fingers once Middle Click: Hold one finger for a while Double Click: Tap with one finger twice Scroll with touch: Move your finger over the scroll area vertically or horizontally. This simulates a touch screen move. So say, you can use this area to move a window by its title area. Scroll (traditional): Tap the scroll mode button (the small button below the scroll area, named "Touch" by default). It will change to "Scroll". Now when you move your finger over the scroll area, it works like a traditional mouse scroll wheel.
The blue lines on the 4 edges indicates the edge areas. (You can hide these lines from the settings screen) When you perform a swipe gesture beyond these indicators, it performs the edge gesture actions. There are lots of actions you can assign for every edge gesture. You can assign the actions from Win10 Controller Server app's settings window. The default ones are below: Left Edge with one finger: Switch to next open app Right Edge with one finger: Open Action Center Top Edge with one finger: Minimize the current window Bottom Edge with one finger: Show Start Menu Left Edge with two fingers: Switch to next virtual desktop Rigth edge with two fingers: Switch to previous virtual desktop Top Edge with two fingers: Close the current window Bottom Edge with two fingers: Show Desktop
