The developer recommends using Bluetooth keyboard and mouse to work with the DOS emulator. Even a game like Wolf 3D for DOS is playable and even windows 3.1 operating system runs just fine.

In relative mode, to move mouse pointer, touch and hold phone screen and move finger. Mouse should move relative to your finger movements. Then to register left mouse click, tap on screen -> double click > double tap. For right click >hold + release finger.

How to use the DosBox for windows phone / windows 10 mobile application:

* install app
* connect phone to PC
* create folder dosbox (or whatever) on the phone or sd-card memory. On W10M you may create folder at the root; on WP8.1 create your folder inside any public folders (Pictures, Documents etc.)
* launch the app and choose folder; after synchronization it will be your virtual drive “c:”. Later, you need to synchronize this folder manually after adding or deleting apps & data.

The only gripe is that it does not support continuum but developer has provided a work-around for that as well.

* first connect to Display Dock or Miracast. now on TV show normal Continuum desktop.
* now in Continuum app on phone or from Continuum desktop or phone select display settings. select “Connected display” if not. on bottom of display settings select “Advanced settings”
* select “Mirror what’s on my device” (but don’t use back arrow for close!!! just select Mirror option and don’t touch anything for now)
* now on TV screen display change from Continuum to phone screen
* if not change disconnect and reconnect USB cable
* if changed press windows key to back to start screen
