    I want to control my home computer from my phone.

    I'm currently using Chrome Remote Desktop and it works great, but when I plug in an external mouse in my phone it works like the touchscreen input system, not directly. I have to keep my left button pressed, and move the android cursor to be able to move the desktop cursor. I can't scroll or use the right mouse button either.

    I have tried TeamViewer, but the external mouse works exactly in the same way as with the Chrome Remote Desktop app.

    This feature is very important to me because it helps me immensely in making and tweaking 3d models between bakes.

    Does anyone know of an app that works with an external mouse directly and not like a finger simulator?

    Does the paid version of Splashtop offer this usability?

    Thank you very much for your interest, and any input you can add.

    Presuming you are not using the phone as the screen that you are viewing the computer on - I think Unified Remote should do what you are looking for it to do.

    I have browsed through their site and it appears that there is no desktop access and only a handful of programs you can access. That isn't good enough for professional use. Thanks for helping though.
