Controlling Mac from PC, how to use CMD and CTL keys?

I'm controlling a Mac from a Windows PC, but I'm having trouble with using Command (CMD). Is there a way to use the CMD key, like a combination of keys? Trying to do simple things like copy, paste, open, etc. Can you remap the keyboard only in TeamViewer?

    Hello @tneilson08

    Thank you for your post, and welcome to the TeamViewer community!

    I connect from my work PC to my Mac daily - I believe I can help!

    From your Windows PC, the Windows key will operate as the Command key - therefore to copy is [Windows key + C], to paste is [Windows key + V], and so on.

    In order to function correctly, you will need to ensure the option to Send Key combinations is checked in the Window PC's TeamViewer Remote control settings:

    Be sure to let us know if you have any issues!
