Desktop Mode

For enhanced work efficiency, project the content of your phone onto an external display, swipe down from the status bar to open the notification panel, then enable DESKTOP MODE.

In DESKTOP MODE, the display of your phone will be arranged in a desktop layout, and operations on your phone won't affect what's on the external display. For example, you can edit a document on the external display while chatting on your phone. You don't need to worry about missing notifications, calls, or messages, as a red dot will appear on the notification panel on the external display to keep you informed.

Use Your Phone as a Touchpad

Swipe down from the status bar to open the notification panel, then touch TOUCHPAD. You can now do the following:
  • Use gestures as instructed to simulate mouse commands.

  • When no external keyboard is connected, click the text input box on the external display to bring out the onscreen keyboard to input text.

    If an external keyboard is connected, the onscreen keyboard will not be available. In this case, you need to use the external keyboard to input text.

Project Your Phone to an External Display to Facilitate Your Work

In DESKTOP MODE, you can use the following features:
  • Multiple windows: Open more than one window at a time to multitask.

  • File management: Save files to the desktop, create files or folders, and rename or delete files.

  • Quick search: Search for documents, multimedia files, and apps using the start menu search box.
