To show the keyboard, tap on the keyboard icon above the bottom tab bar. Using the keyboard, you can enter text on your computer. Above the iOS keyboard, you have two rows of modifier and function keys. If you need to lock the modifier key, like SHIFT or CMD, use a long press to do so, and to release it, tap on it once.
Use the “text” button to paste text from your device on your computer, and enter text, user name, or passwords. Note: user names and passwords are sent using HTTP as clear text, so you should be careful and use it only on your local network at home.
Swipe left on the two rows to show function keys.
You can also use Dictation to enter text on your computer.
Live View allows you to see your computer screen on your device. You can enable it by tapping the display icon in the top toolbar.

Next to the live view button, you have a screenshot button that allows you to take a screenshot of your computer screen and save it to Photos on your device (the app must have permission to capture the screen on your computer and to write to Photos on your device).
