A window will appear on your Smartphone which will be showing you the desktop of your personal Computer.

Congratulations! You just got Remote Access to your Computer.

Once the devices are connected, it is time to use one device from the other. You are in control of you computer and you can send emails, send Prints to your printer and access all the files. Although Team Viewer doesn’t have the feature of Voice, you can see videos at a low frame rate depending upon your Internet Connection.

For Remote Access of Your Home Computer, you need to Ensure the following

1. Your smartphone is connected to the Internet (Local Wi-Fi or Package Data, any would do)
2. You Computer (at home) has access to the Internet.
3. Team Viewer is Running on your Home Computer
4. Your Computer is Open and NOT in Sleep or Standby Mode.

IT SHOULD BE NOTED that Team Viewer password changes each time the software is closed. This means that if you turn off your computer at night, the next day it will have a different password which you will have to note.

To avoid this situation and set a Constant Password for your Team Viewer.

1. Go to Extras and select Options in Drop Down List

4. In the Random Passwords, select Disable Random Password from the Drop Down List and Click OK.
