Blank Screen

For remote access usage, you may want to blank the host/streamer computer monitor so others cannot see what is happening when you connect with Splashtop.

*When you activate the blank screen feature, it's important to note that only the physical monitor of the remote computer will go blank. If there is an active RDP or any other remote software session, the screen will remain visible to those tools.

Toolbar control

You can dynamically enable/disable a blank screen from the new toolbar "blank screen" option.
