This software enables you to remotely control any PC anywhere on the InternetHave you ever needed to access your computer from home when you were at work, just to view a few files? Of course, your personal computer is rarely shutdown while you're away.
Team Viewer is a remote utility that enables you to view the desktop of another computer, and play with is as if it was your own.
Installation is not really necessary, but it is recommended.
The interface of Team Viewer is very simple to understand, even by users who have never dealt with remote utilities before.
The application works like so: two computers must have Team Viewer active on their computer, and each of them will get a unique ID and password.
If you wish to gain control of your friend's computer, you need to input his ID and password and... that's it.
You can set up a remote control, file transfer, or VPN, with anyone in the world.
In addition, several friends can view your desktop, if you host a presentation. This means they have "read-only" privileges, so they can't control anything on your desktop.
Moreover, Team Viewer allows you to create a list of computers to remotely control, manage them, see who is online, and exchange instant messages.
Our thoughts? During a simple remote control on another computer, the reaction time was horribly slow, although our actions have been seen to run perfectly by our friend's computer.
But during a presentation, things ran more smoothly, although there were still some issues. It happened that the viewed desktop had an animated wallpaper, so the colors and movements we could see were dreadful.
To sum things up, Team Viewer is a cute tool you can play or work with, but it needs some major updates.
