The Desktop Mode is enabled when the Cintiq Companion 2 is connected to your computer with the 2-in-1 cable, and the Wacom driver software for PC or Mac operation has been installed. The driver for Desktop Mode can be installed and updated using the Updates section of the Wacom Desktop Center.
The Cintiq is in Mobile Mode when it is not connected to your computer with the 2-in-1 cable. When in Mobile Mode, the Cintiq will function as a Windows tablet with pen and touch input capability. The operating system used in Mobile Mode is pre-installed on your Cintiq.
You can move files between Desktop and Mobile Modes using a MicroSD card, which is accessible in both modes.
See the Quick Start Guide included with your Cintiq for specific instructions on setup and driver installation. See About your Cintiq Companion 2 for a description of the features of your Cintiq.
Pen and touch in Mobile Mode function much the same as in Desktop Mode. In some instances, Mobile Mode applications may not support all pen features.
The Rocker Ring and Center Button functions are much the same in Desktop and Mobile Modes. The settings can be changed in Wacom Tablet Properties, and the Wacom Desktop Center.
