How to Access and Control Computer Remotely Anywhere in the World

This article teaches you how to access and control a computer remotely from another computer by installing TeamViewer software on both computers or device. Please note this is possible if both computer are connected to internet

Once installed on both computers, you can set up one computer to be the "host" computer, allowing it to be controlled by another computer from anywhere, so long as both computers are connected to the internet, are powered on, and have the proper software installed.



Team Viewer can be installed on any computer and can be accessed by other computers or even iOS or Android devices.

Install the Software on the First Computer
  1. Download the TeamViewer app from the company's website  it's free for noncommercial users.
  2. After completing the download, launch the installer.
  3. Select Install and then Next.
  4. For personal use, select personal/noncommercial and then click Next.
  5. Accept the license and usage agreement by selecting both checkboxes and clicking Next.
  6. For installation type, select Yes to install the host listening software on the current computer; then click Next. The software will now be installed.
  7. The app will prompt you to set up unattended access. Click Next, set a descriptive name and password for the computer, and click Next again.
  8. Now you need to create a Teamviewer account, to permit easy, secure access to any of your devices that you want to reach. Fill in a username, email address, and password to create the account, and then click Next.
  9. Click Finish to complete the setup.
The computer will now be running listening software that waits for approved devices to connect to it, and that can also connect to other computers you configure.


Install the Software on the Second Computer
  1. Download TeamViewer from the company's website or from PCWorld's Downloads to another computer that you want to connect to or from. Once the download is complete, launch the app's installer.
  2. Select Install and then Next.
  3. For personal use, select personal/noncommercial and then click Next.
  4. Accept the license and usage agreement by selecting both checkboxes and clicking Next.
  5. For installation type, select Yes to install the host listening software on the current computer; then click Next. The software will now be installed.
  6. The app will prompt you to set up unattended access. Click Next, set a descriptive name and password for the computer, and click Next again.
  7. Select I already have a TeamViewer account. Fill in the username and password that you created previously, and then click Next. Click Finish to complete the setup.
The second computer will now be running listening software that waits for approved devices to connect to it, and can also connect to other computers you configure.

Remotely Connect to One Computer From the Other
With the software is installed at both ends, connecting to the remote computer (typically called the host) from the computer/device where you are currently located (typically called the guest) should be easy.
  1. Launch the software on the guest.
  2. Enter your TeamViewer account login credentials, and log in.
  3. A list of computers associated with your account will be appear in the My Partners list; one of them will be the host computer that you configured earlier. Double-click the name of the remote computer that you want to connect to.
  4. Your remote computer's display will appear in a window, just as if you were sitting directly in front of it. Use the keyboard/mouse/touchpad/touchscreen of your current device to interact with it as you normally would. The software will take your local input and send it to your remote computer, which will then send its display back to your current device in real-time. (Note: For security reasons, some keys and key combinations won't go directly to your remote host, like Ctrl-Alt-Del for Windows. TeamViewer enables you to send these special keys and combinations through its software Actions menu.)
  5. When you're done accessing your remote computer, close the window to end the session.
Note, TeamViewer will typically work without any additional firewall configuration between devices on any computer network (and even between different ones), as long as both are connected to the Internet.
