How to show the cursor on Android phone?

I want to assist my mother, but the cursor movements on her android phone are not visible.

It would be great if she could follow the movement of my mouse before I click on something.

I have installed TeamViewer on my Windows 10 PC and TeamViewer Host on her android phone.

Is it possible to show the movement of my mouse on her phone?

    Hello @CarlosSP,

    You can set this up on your Windows 10 device.

    You need to:

    1. Access the Options of TeamViewer
    2. Go to Advanced 
    3. Go to Advanced setting to connections to this computer
    4. Select View and show

    You can also follow this animation I made for you:

    Thank you for your suggestion to CarlosSP (I have the same situation). But if we use "View and Show" setting, as you recommend, won't we lose the ability to click on icons and control the remote smartphone (which we currently have with the "Full Access" setting)?

    Looking for a way to show my cursor on the remote smartphone while maintaining full access / control of the remote smartphone. Thanks again.

    Hello @bgbalt,

    Yes, you will lose the remote control function is this case.

    It is currently not possible to have the cursor AND the remote control activated.
