Windows Remote Desktop Solutions: Everything You Need to Know

Unlike other software, such as the Windows remote desktop feature, TeamViewer is easy to set up and offers complete functionality irrespective of the operating system you are using or trying to connect to.

The only requirement is that in order to run the remoting application both the host and the remote computer must be fully powered on and connected to the internet.

When using TeamViewer’s remote desktop from Windows, you also have full access to all of the various capabilities it offers, such as:

  • VoIP calls
  • Screen sharing
  • Joining meetings
Computer connectivity

Connecting a Windows device to a Mac or Linux machine can be somewhat more complex.

Unfortunately, Windows remote desktop does not allow free access to a Mac device. For this, you will need to work the other way around and establish a Mac remote desktop connection to the Windows machine, or you will require third-party software such as TeamViewer.

The TeamViewer solution is developed to a high standard of cross-compatibility so there are no problems securing a connection irrespective of your OS or your device.

The cloud-based software creates a seamless workflow amongst colleagues, clients and teams, paving the path for a high-functioning working environment.
