Splashtop uses these touch gestures to provide full touch control over the remote desktop. They include scrolling, drag/drop, and pinch/zoom.

The remote Splashtop session can be minimized on the TouchPad to jump into local apps. Tapping the session onscreen brings the user back to the remote session.

Just as on OS X, the full Windows 7 desktop works in Splashtop as expected.

The two-finger salute is used to zoom in and out of the remote desktop as needed.

An icon on the lower right of the screen invokes the virtual keyboard when needed. Special control keys are added by Splashtop to provide additional control over the remote session.

Splashtop remote sessions can be used to run maintenance from afar. Note that utilities that restart the remote system will kill the Splashtop session.

It is possible to minimize a Splashtop remote session to do other things on the TouchPad. Returning to the Splashtop card brings you back to the remote desktop.
