If you would like to assist a friend remotely or present from your machine and have others look in, TeamViewer is for you. Learn, in this guide, what team viewer is and where to download it.
TeamViewer lets you share your desktop with friends, which is helpful if they are far away and you want to show them something on your computer. You can also access a friend’s computer and fix it for them without them needing to install software.
TeamViewer is made up of two pieces of software: the host and the client. The host is on your computer; you can use the software to either share your screen with others or access someone’s computer with the client software. The client is your friend who wants to view your screen or have you access their machine. They need to download the standalone application that doesn’t need installation (you can invite them by email and they’ll get a link), give you the access code, and you can get to work.
Installation is easy. I recommend installing the host software and configuring advanced settings — for full control.
The client runs the standalone application and shares their ID and password with you.
You enter the information in the host application.
Type in the password they share.
You’re in! You can now fix your friends computer using all the fun tricks you’ve learned on this site.
TeamViewer is customizable, right down to the instruction email, which you send to a friend to give them access.
Give TeamViewer a try and impress your friends with your remote-connection skills and expertise as you fix their computer.
