We’ve all been there:
A co-worker asks to see something on our screen.
A friend has a problem with his device.
What if we want to help, but we’re on the other side of the world?
That – and many other use cases – is what remote access is for.
Even in a professional environment, remote access software can be incredibly helpful, such as cases where you need to roll-out a program to all the devices in your company.
AnyDesk offers the easiest remote access solution. Don’t believe us? Try it yourself! Installing AnyDesk is simple and only takes a minute. Here’s a little guide on how to get started with AnyDesk and – if you’re intrigued – how to expand on the features we offer.
First things first: AnyDesk is free for private use. So if your grandmother needs help setting up her PC, you can easily help her from your own home and you don’t have to pay a cent. Not only that, but you don’t have to sign up for anything and you barely need any space on your PC. Simply download the 2mb file from https://anydesk.com/ and get going!
Whoever you’d like to connect to needs to download AnyDesk as well. Just tell them how easy it is and they’ll be ready in the blink of an eye.
And that’s it! You’re now ready to start your first session.
To get started, open AnyDesk: The number you see on the left is your personal ID. People can use that number to access your device, and you need this number from the person you want to connect to. You can also set up an Alias. Type the ID of the device or its Alias you want to connect to into the search bar on the right and wait for your remote device to accept the connection.
What if you’re at the office, but you want to listen to a playlist on your home PC where no one is there to accept the connection? That’s easy! Simply set up a password for unattended access.
How else can you choose who to connect to? Take a look at your home window:
Have you connected to the remote device? This is what the remote side sees :
And here’s what you see. Some basic tools you can also use include:
To end the connection, either click disconnect on the remote side, close the tab, or close AnyDesk.
Easy, isn’t it? Naturally, these first steps aren’t even half of what AnyDesk is actually capable of – especially when it comes to commercial use.
