What's New in TinyPilot's June 2024 Update

TinyPilot's June release lets you transfer files using a virtual USB drive and adds touchscreen support.

Easily transfer files using a virtual USB drive

TinyPilot's virtual media feature made installing operating systems and other software from disk images onto your target machine quick and straightforward, and we've now expanded this feature to make transferring individual files from your computer just as easy!

Simply select one or more files from your local computer, and TinyPilot will create a disk image you can use just like any other virtual media. It works like a virtual USB drive, meaning you can open and copy the files on your target computer just as you would if you were physically there!

Transferring files using a virtual USB drive can make awkward tasks, such as updating the BIOS on a target computer, quick, easy, and convenient.

Support for using touchscreen input

If you've previously tried to use TinyPilot from a touchscreen device, you might have found it tricky to control the target computer's cursor. We've now added touchscreen support for clicking, double-clicking, and right-clicking directly into TinyPilot, meaning it's easy to work with your target device, even when you're away from your desk.
