I am trying to use Chrome Remote Desktop on a tablet with Android 5.1.1 to remotely access my work iMac. I have a Bluetooth keyboard, and the problem is that I'm unable to use the cmd key on my Bluetooth keyboard to do things like cmd-c or cmd-tab when connected to the iMac, which make the whole thing practically unusable.

I suspect that Android is intercepting this key for a feature I've seen referred to as "Quick Launch", so Chrome Remote Desktop maybe doesn't even know I pressed that key. Is there a way on Android for the cmd key to "work, so I can do things like cmd-c and cmd-tab in Chrome Remote Desktop? If not, is this possible with another "remote desktop" app, or is that a limitation of the OS?
