    According to the website ( I should be able to connect a Windows 10 tablet to remote from, but in the support documentation, I can only remote from an android or iOS device. Can I not remote from a Windows 10 tablet to control the presentation as a teacher?

    Win 10 App per design works on the computer where streamer is installed. From iPad or Android device you can login remotely and control as a teacher.

    Sorry about the confusion.
