Bug Description

In the description when you connect a Touch device to an external display, it will tells you that:
"Your device is now connected to an external display. Use this screen as a touch pad to interact with the mouse."

I think it should be "interact with the cursor" instead of the mouse, as we will be able to use the touchscreen as a touchpad.
