Top Five Things To Do With Remote Control Software

We all have our reasons to remote control our computers. Here's our top five list:
1. Remote IT support.

It happens. Someone calls you asking you to "fix the Windows" again. And trying to tell an inexperienced person how to open the Control Panel over the phone can be really difficult. Remote control software can get everything done in about 30 seconds.

2. Emergency file access

You're at work about to give a big presentation. Then the whole NAS network goes down. Great, there goes your PowerPoint file. But then you remember you had a copy on your computer at home. All you have to is fire up a portable version of your remote control software, connect to your computer, open up a web browser, and just email it to yourself. Problem solved.

3. Web filter bypass

This is an easy one. If you need to access a blocked website (we all have our reasons), just remote control your computer. Then open up a web browser on the client and you have unrestricted web access (and unmonitored in most situations). If you do this a lot, I recommend taking a look at For more information about BitFlush, read here:

4. Multitasking

For this one you will need more than two computers. If you have a bunch of older single core computers (like me), then just fire up RC software on all of them. Then on one computer you can alt-tab between the connections to all of the computers. Giving you a "multi core" computer.

5. Pranks

We've probably all done this at some point in one way or another. Of course you can stick a wireless mouse adapter in the back of a co-workers computer and make a run for it. But RC software makes it easy to do it from a safe distance.

So let us know in the comments, what is the funniest prank you have ever pulled involving a computer? Drop your response in the comments below.
