Sometimes, you may want to access files stored on your work computer while you are away.If you find yourself in this situation, try a remote access client like AnyDesk.

Let's take a deep dive and see how you can use AnyDesk to connect to a remote computer.


what isAnyDesk, why are you using it?

AnyDesk is a remote desktop application that allows you to connect and use your computer remotely.For example, with AnyDesk, you can connect to your work computer via the Internet from your bedroom.

AnyDesk works with all major operating systems, including Android, iOS, macOS, Windows, and Linux.

Simple and convenient remote access is the main reason to use AnyDesk.This client allows you to connect to remote Windows machines and use them just like the one you have at hand.This includes printing files stored on remote computers, transferring files to your local computer, and waking remote machines from sleep over the Internet.

Additionally, AnyDesk supports unattended access.With this feature, you can access a computer remotely without requiring anyone to authorize the connection request.All you have to do is set a password on the remote machine and use that password to access it anytime over the network.

What makes AnyDesk better for tasks like support and remote work is that the client doesn't require a high-speed internet connection.

How to use AnyDesk to connect and use a remote computer

Before we dive into the details, keep in mind that both the local and remote computers need to be running the AnyDesk client.

First, downloadAnyDesk.Double click on the downloaded file and it will launch the AnyDesk client.After the client starts up, you will first see a screen with your address on it.Anyone can use this address to connect to your computer.


If you just want others to access your computer, or want to connect to a remote computer, and don't plan to use features such as file transfers, you can use the client without installing it.But to use the full potential of AnyDesk, you need to install it.

So click Install AnyDesk, set the installation path, select/deselect the options shown on the screen, and click Accept and Install.After the installation is complete, the client will start automatically.

To connect to a remote computer, enter the address in the address bar above.If the address is valid, a machine will be displayed.Click it and AnyDesk will send a connection request to the remote computer.


Once the user on the other end accepts the connection request, you can use the machine from within AnyDesk.


The same process applies to mobile devices as well.For Android/iOS, install the AnyDesk app from the respective app store.Launch the app and note the address.Using that address, as shown in the image above, connect to your phone.

AnyDesk makes remote work a breeze...but it can't replace a good laptop

With unattended access, file transfer, local printing, and the ability to connect regardless of operating system, AnyDesk is an excellent choice for remote work.

However, the AnyDesk is no substitute for a powerful laptop.Since AnyDesk relies on a network connection, the experience won't be ideal if you're in an area with an unstable network.

If you have the money, a good computer is the best investment you can make to promote working from home.
