Using a Remote Desktop Using TeamViewer

Introduction: Using a Remote Desktop Using TeamViewer

How to Set Up Remote Desktop Using TeamViewer

Many users find it fun if we can remotely connect to any desktop, but find it hard because of all the hard things they need to do.
But there is one utility which provides a very powerful interface for one to simply DO the remote desktop! The pictures below show how simple it is!

There are three things that you need to remember that you need to have:
1.) TeamViewer on both computers
2.) A good internet connection
3.) Common sense

To do remote desktop:
1.) Download the client.
2.) Install/run it. It doesn't matter.
3.) Take note of the TeamViewer ID (T-ID) and the password that you have. The other computer will use this to connect to you.
4.) To connect: Simply enter the T-ID of the other user and the password for that T-ID
5.) Once everything is okay, you will be shown the desktop of the other computer in a window!
6.) To end, simply press the close button inside the TeamViewer pop-up with the remotely controlled computer OR with your own pop-up.

    You should give TeamViewer 11 Remote Desktop the latest version from 2017 setup a try because it is both offline and standalone and allows you to provide remote support! You can have fun now accessing PC from using browser or software! :) You can get it from below site have fun!

    Yeah, TeamViewer is a nice remote desktop support tool but security of hosted services is an issue. Have a look at a recent article on data hack Instead, I would recommend use of on premise R-HUB remote support servers. It works from behind your corporate firewall, hence better security.

    Useful howto. Why don't you do one for NoMachine? It's a similar remote access product. I use it for support on a couple of my customers' computers.
