       Click the icon again to exit full-screen mode.




    Position - Click and drag the tool bar to your preferred location.




    Pin - Lock or unlock the tool bar to the title bar in full screen view.

    •   Lock Session - Locks the remote endpoint. A password will be required to unlock it.
    •   Send Special Keys - If enabled, allows you to send key combination commands such as Ctrl+C,      Windows+R, etc.

      Special key combinations depend on the operating system of the local device and the remote device. See the list of available special key combinations below.

    •    Best Fit - Automatically adjusts the screen resolution for the best visual experience.

    •    Original - Displays the target desktop at its own resolution
    •    Fullscreen - Displays the remote desktop in full-screen view
