The clicker was designed specifically for HoloLens and gives you another way to interact with holograms. It comes with HoloLens, in a separate box. Use it in place of hand gestures to select, scroll, move, and resize.
To put on the clicker, slide the loop over your ring or middle finger with the Micro USB port toward your wrist. Rest your thumb in the indentation.
Clicker gestures are small wrist rotations, not the larger movements used for HoloLens hand gestures. And HoloLens will recognize your gestures and clicks even if the clicker is outside the gesture frame, so you can hold the clicker in the position that's most comfortable for you.
Select. To select a hologram, button, or other element, gaze at it, then click.
Click and hold. Click and hold your thumb down on the button to do some of the same things you would with tap and hold, like move or resize a hologram.
Scroll. On the app bar, select Scroll Tool
Zoom. On the app bar, select Zoom Tool
In Microsoft Edge, gaze at a page and double-click to zoom in or out.
To pair the clicker with your HoloLens, see Pair Bluetooth devices.
