Do not panic if you are anywhere on this computer, you can recover it by accessing your laptop or PC from any computer. If you want to gain access to someone else's computer or give access to your computer to someone sitting away, then you have some desktop tools.
These programs allow you to connect your computer safely through another device. You can control your computer completely from any place. Here in this report we will tell you how you can get access to your computer easily sitting away.
Apple and Microsoft Tools
Both Apple and Microsoft have their own remote desktop tools. But it depends on you what you need. However, this option should not be your first choice. Let us know that Apple has a large-scale sales of a remote desktop program at a price of $ 79.99. But it's really for IT professionals and network managers. On the other hand, if you want to connect one Mac to another Mac, then screen sharing can be a better option for you. You will not need to spend anything for this.
For this you have to go to the system preference. After this, click Sharing and tick the screen sharing button. Now, go back to system preference, go to iCloud section and tick on Back to My Mac. After setting this up, you can access your original Mac from another MacOS machine that is signed in your old iCloud account. Now open Finder and go to the share section of the sidebar. Now find your home computer in this section, click it and select the share screen.
Screen sharing works great for Mac devices. This makes the process of accessing your Apple computer from any other operating system to a bit complicated. When you move to MacOS from Windows and other devices using this method, then you will need some advanced networks for this. Instead, you can use third party remote desktop tools.
Microsoft makes its own remote desktop device for both Windows and MacOS. But let us tell you that you can only connect it to a Windows Professional, Ultimate or a machine that runs on the Enterprise version of Windows. However, if you have installed any of these versions of Windows, you can use the remote desktop assistant program to configure access. But you can use third-party option instead.
Third-party tools: Google Chrome
While Apple and Microsoft offer remote tools for IT professionals, no one can use the free remote access made by Google Chrome. You will have access to it through your Google Account, and the tool offers your password and log in information through a single sync technology in Chrome on many platforms. You can also use Google's Remote Tool for your browser, Android app app and even for iOS device.
Before connecting to a computer, you need to install the web app on the computer that you want to access from a distance. Now launch the app and enable remote connections. After this, you have to enter the PIN in it, which will be used to gain access to your computer in the future. On the same screen you can click on the pencil icon next to the device's default name.
After that, turn on the device from which you are planning to access your original computer. If you are on another computer, launch the web app and you will see the original machine under My Computer listing. Click on it, and enter the PIN that was set earlier. The remote machine will open a remote access window, within which you see the desktop screen of your native computer and interact with it via a remote mouse and keyboard. In addition, you can get an app option to complete a Task Performance, create a new window, change the size of the desktop or send print screen commands. You can use these options on the top left icon of the remote access window: Click this to open a drop-down menu.
