Remote Desktop Connect
Although it can be easier to fix a software-related problem if you are in the same room with the computer in question, it is not always possible to do so. Thus, an alternative solution is to use the Internet in order to connect the two machines together and take full control of the target system.
Remotely connect to another computer
Remote Desktop Connect is a software utility that enables you to connect to another compute and take control of its operating system, while also being able to modify files and explore any folder or directory. This can come in handy when you want to help someone fix their computer, as well as if you just want to share files or chat.
To initiate a connection, all you need to do is enter the ID and the password of the target machine, which is generated automatically by the application. Hence, you can view and control computers across any distance, as long as your Internet connection allows you to maintain a constant data transfer. In addition, you can also change the resolution of the output window to the desired value, all the way up to full-HD.
Adjust the graphic performance
As far as the quality is concerned, it can be adjusted from within the application, by changing the amount of colors visible on your end, regardless of what resolution your partner uses. This can range from a basic 8-color scheme and up to the source format. In addition, the utility offers support for dual monitor resolutions, which can be enabled whenever you require it.
Beside the fact that you can control the mouse cursor on the target machine, you can also use your keyboard, which allows you to type web addresses or just plain text. By making use of this function, you can easily transform the application into an instant messenger, or even play some basic games.
A simple, but effective remote connector
All in all, Remote Desktop Connect is a handy utility to have around, although it does not offer any kind of additional features, except for the dual-monitor support. It does, however, provide you with a satisfying experience when it comes to the actual remote connection, despite the fact that it sports pretty high response times, even on low quality settings.
