TeamViewer is a fast and secure all-in-one solution for gaining access to computers and networks remotely. With a range of powerful remote access features that make light work of remote control, meetings and maintaining a cloud-based service desk, there is a host of resources showing you exactly how to harness the full power of TeamViewer.
With helpful user manuals, first step documents and general how-to guides available, you will learn exactly how to use TeamViewer to the fullest.
Whether using the all-in-one solution as an IT department or a managed service provider, intuitive functions such as Wake-on-LAN, unattended access and ticket assigning are all at your disposal.
The initial TeamViewer setup couldn’t be easier: simply install the software, indicate whether you want to use it for commercial or private use, create a name and password for your computer, and make note of it for future reference.
Once the installation process is complete, you will then be taken to the main TeamViewer interface, which is divided up into two tabs: remote control and meeting.
From here, you can navigate to the various features outlined below.
How to Set Up TeamViewer Remote Control
In order to make a start with TeamViewer’s remote control functions, navigate to the Remote Control tab of the main interface. Here, you will find your TeamViewer ID and your temporary password, which you can change at any point. With this information, you can allow a partner remote control of your computer.
In order to do this in reverse and control another computer remotely, you simply enter the partner computer ID and choose between various connection modes such as remote control, file transfer or VPN. Additionally, as soon as one or more remote connections have been established, each session will be displayed in the title bar of the Remote Control window.
For more information on how to establish a remote control connection, see the TeamViewer
manual for remote control.
TeamViewer Guide to Meeting
The other section of your main TeamViewer interface is the second tab labelled Meeting. This section is divided up into two main areas: host meetings and join meetings. In order to start a TeamViewer meeting, choose between the following options: a presentation, a video call or a phone call. You can also schedule and manage meetings from here.
When joining a meeting, enter your name and the meeting ID, which you will receive from the person inviting you to the meeting. Alternatively, you may receive an invitation message with a link that will automatically connect you to the meeting.
Some meetings may require a password, depending on the preferences of the initiator of the meeting.
TeamViewer: Getting Started with Its Comprehensive Features
From within the intuitive and easy-to-use TeamViewer interface, a wealth of different features are at your fingertips. The remote control section of the dashboard is the entryway to various device management options such as Wake-On-LAN or unattended access. Known for its cross compatibility options, many users may take advantage of mobile connections, and TeamViewer’s step-by-step guide to accessing computers from a mobile device.
The Meetings area of the interface offers you the chance to start and host instant meetings with colleagues or clients and is ideal for taking a look at collaborative projects together.
For meetings planned in advance, TeamViewer provides a scheduling function which allows you to set up TeamViewer meetings with various participants and arrange a date and time that best suits you – the time or day of scheduled meetings can be changed at any point.
