My desktop PC is my workstation and sometimes I need access to it when I’m not sitting in front of it and thanks to Chrome Remote Desktop I can do that and I can do it pretty easiliy.
There are plenty of remote access apps available on the market but I don’t work in I.T. and I don’t want the hassle or security risk of having to set those up. I need something quick and easy to use for the odd occasions that I’m out of the office and need immediate access to my desktop.
Chrome Remote Desktop allows you to connect any device (phone, tablet, laptop) to your desktop via the google Chrome Browser so you can access it anywhere in the world as long as you have the Chrome Browser.
It was so easy to setup that I managed to do it within minutes.
I’m unlikely to do creative work on the fly via remote access but it’s handy when you need to get access to the odd file or detail stored on your desktop.
