sRemote is a lightweight software tool that provides users with a simple means of remotely controlling their computer via their Gmail account.
The upside of a portable app
This product is portable and therefore, you are not required to go through the installation process. Consequently, the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to suffer any changes, and no traces are going to remain behind after you discard it from the disk.
It is also important to note that by placing the program files to a USB thumb drive, you make it possible to run sRemote on any computer you come in contact with, by simply clicking the EXE.
The interface you come by presents a pretty simple, yet not very appealing build. It is comprised of a few buttons and a pane in which to view details. Moreover, extensive Help contents are incorporated, yet novice users might have a few difficulties when trying to work with it, mostly due to app’s method of use.
Connect to another PC and tinker with some settings
First and foremost, you should know that you are required to input a master password, so that you can be sure that only authorized people can make changes to your settings. This program enables you to remotely connect and control a computer through a Gmail account.
You can start monitoring a PC with just a click of the button, as well as stop the process in the same manner. It is important to understand that you are going to run commands through the subject of all the e-mails you send, yet you should know that tips on how to do this are provided by the developers.
In addition to that, you can change the master passkey at any point, hide the utility in the system tray and change the monitor time (expressed in seconds) and Gmail settings.
Performance and conclusion
sRemote does not hinder the computer’s performance and does not pop errors, hang or freeze. The response time is quite good, yet the interface is not particularly user-friendly. Taking all of this into consideration, we can safely say it is a pretty handy piece of software, which might benefit from some updates.
