TeamViewer is a creative and powerful tool that allows you to control a computer remotely over the internet. This makes it excellent for retrieving lost data, and it's also a terrific method to assist friends and family with computer issues without having to leave your desk.
You can download and install the software for free if you're a home user. See the licence options for commercial use. As you continue on, you'll learn how to recover that misplaced file as well as take remote control of your desktop PC. This is how you do it.
Step 1: Download Software
Because TeamViewer works like a telephone conversation between two PCs, the programme must be installed on both devices. We'll suppose you have a main desktop computer and a laptop that you carry about with you. To get started, go to www.teamviewer.com and download TeamViewer for your desktop PC.
Step 2: Configuration
Now, at the bottom of the screen, click 'Run' and accept the licence agreement when required. You'll also need to check the two check boxes here. Finally, select 'Personal/non-commercial usage' and click 'Next' when requested. 'Set up unattended access' is the following screen. To continue, all you have to do is click 'Next.'
Step 3: Make an Account
You'll need to give your computer a password on the next screen. Click 'Next' once you've decided on one. You'll be asked to enter your email address and a TeamViewer password on the next screen; remember this password because you'll need it later. When you're finished, click 'Next.'
Step 4: Activate your TeamViewer
You should now see a screen similar to the one seen above. At this stage, don't bother about the passwords; we'll use them later. Your final task is to go to your email inbox and look for a TeamViewer message. You'll need to open it and then click on the long link to activate your TeamViewer account.
Step 5: Setup your PC
Next, turn on your laptop and install TeamViewer there as well. When you're finished, repeat the steps above until you reach the screen shown above. Select 'I already have a TeamViewer account' this time and enter your TeamViewer password as well as the email address you used to signup.
Step 6: Take Control
Let's take a risk and give your laptop complete control of your desktop. Take down the number next to 'Your ID' on your main PC. Enter this number into the 'Partner ID' box on your laptop now. Enter your TeamViewer password and click 'Connect to partner.' The Windows desktop of your desktop PC will appear.
Step 7: Access your PC Remotely
You should now be able to move icons around on your other PC while working on your laptop. You can also adjust the system configuration and open and close programmes. TeamViewer is also useful for remotely debugging PCs in this manner. Set it up the same way you did before, and you'll be able to assist your friends from the comfort of your own home.
Step 8: Access your File
Close the windows that control your other PC, then look under 'Control remote computer' in the TeamViewer display if you neglected to transfer a file from your desktop. 'File transfer > Connect > Log on' should be selected. Select your file by navigating to it. It will be moved to your laptop's My Documents folder after you click 'Retrieve.'
