How to use TeamViewer to remote access or control your device?
To use TeamViewer, you first need to download the application from the internet. Please do remember that TeamViewer is completely free for personal use and it’s chargeable, for commercial use. For more details about the commercial license pricing please refer to its pricing page.
After you download the application as per the operating system you are using, install it and lunch the application. One thing you have to keep in the notice, every time while using this application is that the device from which you are using this application should have an active internet connection. Otherwise, this application will not work.
When the internet connection is active and you have successfully launched the application, you will be provided with an ID and Password.
Now let’s say, you have a Windows Desktop having an active internet connection. And also you have an Android smartphone. And you have installed TeamViewer for Android into your smartphone. Now if you want to access any file which is on your desktop, and which you want to access from your smartphone at a different location. You just need to have the ID and password as shown in the TeamViewer interface. Enter the ID and password in the Control Remote Computer section. You can do it from any other system and vice versa.
If you have signed up with your email and password and login with the same credentials into the TeamViewer app, then every time you don’t need to know the ID and password. You can save the systems which you will access frequently into the contact list so that you don’t need to enter the ID every time.
