Selecting the Best Features for Your Home Office

AnyDesk’s remote access solution offers a fast connection and a high level of security, all at a very affordable price. So far, so good. But what does work from home with AnyDesk look like?

The short answer is: It simply looks like sitting in front of your PC at the office.

What does that mean? All the tools on your office computer are with you at all times and they work just as they would if you were sitting in front of work PC, just as fast and with almost zero latency on your local device, even at low bandwidths.

Unattended Access

Setting a password and being able to access your work PC without being present at the office is probably the most important feature for remote work. You can start a remote session from home by allowing unattended access. Just be sure to check the box “login automatically from now on” to connect even more quickly. So whether you are providing support, or working on your office computer from home, or maintaining devices remotely, with Unattended Access you gain secure access to devices when no one is around them.

Privacy Mode

Now you can see the screen of your PC at work, but so can everyone else. Do you dislike the idea of co-workers walking by your cubicle and seeing what you’re working on without you knowing? Turn the remote screen black! Just enable Privacy Mode in the security settings. AnyDesk Privacy Mode keeps your work invisible. Privacy Mode is especially helpful if you are working with sensitive data that shouldn’t be viewed by anyone but you, or if you have to maintain screens in public places. No one outside the company will be able to view critical data.

Remote Printing

Finally you can start working! Go to full screen mode for the full immersive experience and it’ll be like you took your office PC home with you. If you need to print a document, you don’t even have to go through the trouble of transferring the file to your local device. Simply choose the AnyDesk printer and the print job will be sent to your local PC. Now you just have to select your local printer and you’re done! Not only that, but subsequent print jobs can also be automatically sent to your local printer.

File Transfer

Of course, you also get a clipboard with AnyDesk, meaning you can use the familiar CTRL+C and CTRL+V to easily exchange text, screenshots, and more between your remote and your local devices. Use File Manager for easy management of your files locally. Furthermore, administrators can block this feature if it seems necessary to protect sensitive data. With Remote File Transfer on all Devices and Platforms, it’s never been easier to share files and folders without the need of any additional software. There are no limitations. Share as many files as you want and as often as you need.


Now that you’re working from home, you can’t just have your co-workers come by and ask you to solve a problem on their computer. But with AnyDesk, you can still work together just as easily! The Whiteboard feature lets you draw simple instructions, and the chat feature lets you communicate easily. On top of that, Session Recording allows you to record the interaction for future reference.

Cancelling meetings are always a nuisance. You don’t have to do that anymore! How about simply inviting your co-workers to your screen and letting them view your presentation?


Leaving the office network begs the question: Is my data still secure?

Be reassured with AnyDesk, which uses the best possible encryption, making it as safe as online banking. The many security settings allow you to exclude other devices from finding you or sending session requests, and your password for Unattended Access is hashed. As you see, nothing has to change when working from home. Whatever the setup of your office space may be – you can take it with you with AnyDesk. It’s simply the easiest way to set up your home office.
