TeamViewer is a simple tool that shares your desktop with another user, available for Windows.TeamViewer is a great tool for anyone looking to connect to another computer or device while nowhere near it. It takes a short while to set up but it is worth the time spent. Each device has its own ID and other users cannot connect to your devices without the temporary password displayed.

TeamViewer is a solution for remote control, desktop sharing, and file transfer that works behind any firewall and NAT proxy. To connect to another computer just run TeamViewer on both machines without the need of an installation procedure. With the first start automatic partner IDs are generated on both computers. Enter your partner’s ID into TeamViewer and the connection is established immediately.

application spans across almost every mobile device and computer system, allowing these all to communicate with each other as you share files, chat, and watch or control each other’s computers. The desktop background displayed will always be blacked out for privacy reasons.

To connect to another computer you’ll need to know its TeamViewer ID. To do this, you’ll go under the allow Remote Control section and share the ID and temporary password to let another computer join your desktop, or to the Control Remote Computer if you want access to someone else’s computer.

TeamViewer is an app that allows you to remotely connect to multiple workstations. There are many apps that allow remote control of different systems, but TeamViewer is set up to be extremely accessible, while also being powerful. Whether managing an IT department or just helping your neighbor down the street fix their computer, it is an application worth installing on your system.

Key features

Passing control: With TeamViewer, all parties install the software and then connect to a session. Control of a computer can then be passed from person to person, instead of being a one-way street as is sometimes the case with this type of software.

Team sessions: The software gets its name for a reason, as you’re able to include multiple parties in a connection. This is great when you’re managing a team of employees as you can switch back and forth to wherever you’re needed at any given time. The multiple connections are sorted into tabs, which makes it easy to stay organized and see where you’re needed.

File transfer: A great feature is the ability to drag and drop files from one computer to another. That way, if you’re helping someone solve a problem and they need a particular file, you don’t need to waste time downloading it to their machine or emailing it over. If you already have the file, you can just copy it over with a few clicks.

VPN Access

TeamViewer’s VPN mode allows two computers to connect as though they shared the same LAN network. This can be used by gamers in titles such as Minecraft to host their worlds. It can also allow you to print documents on any connected printer used by the other desktop.

Both devices will need to have had the TeamViewer installation process take place while the VPN option is enabled. If it is disabled on your computer during installation, you can simply enable it at a later stage when you need it. This will, however, require a few moments as the driver installs itself onto your desktop.

If you need a solution that will allow you to access your own computers remotely, or to connect with your friends’ or family’s machines, the free version of TeamViewer is a very good option. Even a non-technical person should have no problem establishing a connection.

The connection mode titled File Transfer allows you to send files between the two devices that have been connected through TeamViewer. You can open this option from the Remote Control tab at the start of a connection or during a live session.
