I'm a volunteer for a senior organization that helps seniors at home. I often get questions about cell phones. In this time of Covid it would be handy to be able to help people remotely. That's easy when using TeamViewer from computer to computer.

My question is this:
It's straight forward to have a computer with TeamViewer take over a mobile phone that has the TeamViewer app installed.

Is there a way to have the computer's cursor show on the screen of the phone?

In that way it would be very easy to answer a user's questions about how to do such-and-so on their phone.

Thanks for your help.

PS: I have searched the TeamViewer website and while there is access to the knowledge base, I cannot find a way to post a question like this. If you know of such a link, please send it to me.

There is nothing to "take over". Phones don't have a cursor. So I guess the real question that you should be asking is if the phone app can create and display a cursor. I'd guess not.
