Occasionally, users might need to access their home computer when they are at work, even if it is only to access a few files. Rather than going home, copying the files on a USB flash stick then travelling back to work, one could leave the home PC on and access it using TeamViewer.

Remote access control for beginners and advanced users

This is an intuitive utility that enables users to remotely connect to a computer, view its desktop and operate it as if it was their own. Furthermore, these functions are not limited to professionals alone, as the user-friendly interface also allows beginners to work with it, even if they have not tested a remote utility before.

Fast and simple configuration

Basically, in order to use TeamViewer, the app needs to be installed on both of the computers involved in the connection, and each of them gets a unique ID and password. Whenever users want to gain control of the other computer, they need to input the corresponding ID and password to immediately establish the connection.

In other words, one can set up a remote controller, start a file transfer, or access a VPN, with anyone in the world.

Host meetings and presentations

Another use for this program is setting up a presentation that can be accessed by multiple users simultaneously while granting them "read-only" privileges, so they cannot control anything on the host desktop. Of course, these permissions can be adjusted to give them more control.

Moreover, TeamViewer enables users to create a list of computers to automatically control remotely, manage them and even exchange instant messages or make video or phone calls. Experts are free to dive into the wide range of customization preferences in order to set hotkeys, activate Wake-on-LAN on computers to turn them on without help from the remote user, and so on.

Evaluation and conclusion

It should be noted that the speed and performance of the connection depend on the characteristics of the host computer, i.e. the faster the PC, the more stable the remote connection. Also, it is best to stop all the unnecessary applications in order to allow TeamViewer to use as much RAM as it requires.

To sum it up, TeamViewer comes  inhandy when a remote connection is needed, especially considering that it can be used for free (non-commercial).
