Remote control via Chrome
Remote control tools allow you to access your computer remotely, taking full control of your system wherever you are. Yet never has this been so easy as now with Chrome Remote Desktop.
This extension for Google Chrome saves you from configurations and offers direct and unfettered access to a computer. Use a PC as if you were sitting right in front of it. It also allows other users to take control of your desktop.
How to use
After installing the extension, its icon appears in the Chrome apps page. To use it you must allow it extended permissions. Then choose between these two options:
- Remote Assistance: this is the ideal choice to access another user's computer remotely, for example, to provide technical assistance, or for another user to access your system.
- My computers: choose this option if you want to take control of your own computer remotely.
After selecting the appropriate option, Chrome Remote Desktop generates a PIN that you then share with the other party (in this case the person who is going to access your PC) or receive it (if it is you who needs to access your computer remotely).
