How to use TeamViewer to control another PC
The first thing we will do is download TeamViewer from the official page from the following link:
For this example we are going to connect from Windows 10 to Mac to control it, but regardless of the system, whenever we are going to control a computer, the TeamViewer program must also be installed and open on it.
From Windows 10 in this case we are going to open TeamViewer and we will see this window:
Here we must look at the following information that we must ask the user where we are going to connect:
It corresponds to the identifier of the equipment where we are going to connect remotely and that we need to link the connection
It is the password we need to access the other computer and it must also be provided by the remote user.
Once the data has been provided to us by the other user, we first enter the corresponding ID. Activate the "Remote Control" option
Then we will click on "Connect"
Now enter the corresponding password that the other user has given you to have access permissions. Click on "Login".
If you click on "Advanced" you can choose the type of control when the connection is established:
Click on Login and the connection process will begin. We can already see that the remote desktop where we have connected appears and a panel of superior options to control it.
We can see the full screen if we want from the "View" option
Click on "Actions" to end the device control with "Terminate session" and the connection will be terminated
In this way we have seen how we can use TeamViewer to control a PC and thus be able to use the remote control when we need it..
