How to connect to your PC remotely with TeamViewer
TeamViewer is a powerful program that will let you take remote control of a PC over the internet
Step-by-step: Get TeamViewer Up And Runing
1. Download the software
TeamViewer is like a telephone conversation made between two PCs, so both machines will need to have the software installed. We’re going to assume you’ve a main desktop PC and a laptop that you take out and about with you. To get started, download TeamViewer on your desktop PC from TeamViewer.
2. Get TeamViewer Installed
Now click ‘Run’ at the bottom of the screen and, when prompted, accept the license agreement. You’ll need to check the two tick boxes here as well. Finally, when prompted, choose ‘Personal/
non-commercial use’ and click ‘Next’. The next screen is called ‘Set up unattended access’. All you need do is click ‘Next’ to proceed.
3. Create An Account
On the next screen, you’ll need to give your computer a password. Once you’ve chosen one, click ‘Next’. On the following screen you’ll be asked to provide your email address and a TeamViewer password; make a note of this password, because you’ll need it later. Click ‘Next’ when you’re done.
4. Activate Your TeamViewer
You will now see a screen that looks like the one above. Don’t worry about the passwords at this point – we’ll use those later. Your final job is to access your email inbox and find a message from TeamViewer. You’ll need to open it and click on the long link, which will activate your TeamViewer registration.
