The keyboard shortcuts support has been enhanced to help users optimize workflow when using Splashtop Business app to have remote connections. The main difference is that users now can decide the shortcuts should apply to the local side (the side you initiate the connection) or the remote side(the side you want to connect to.)

Requirements

  • Splashtop Business app version 3.4.8.3 or later.

Available Options

There are three options in “Keyboard Shortcuts“ on the toolbar of the remote connection: Enable Splashtop Shortcuts, Enable System Shortcuts, and Enable Input-Releasing Shortcut.

For Enable Splashtop Shortcuts and Enable System Shortcuts, when you tick the option, it means the shortcuts will apply to the local side. When they are unticked, it means the shortcuts will apply to the remote side.

For Enable Input-Releasing Shortcut, ticking the option means turning it on while unticking the option means disabling the function.

Example Use Case: To switch app on the local computer for Windows users

For Windows users, we can use Alt + Tab to switch app. If we are having a connection from a Windows computer to a Windows computer, it will allow us to switch app on the remote computer using Alt + Tab.
With Input-releasing Shortcut, we can also use Alt + Tab to switch app on the local computer.

1. When Input-releasing Shortcut is not ticked, pressing Ctrl + Alt will allow you to switch app on the remote computer.

2. Tick the Input-releasing Shortcut option to enable it
