If you want hassle-free remote desktop connecting, TeamViewer is the program you should install. With over 200 million users around the world, TeamViewer is the leading remote desktop connection tool out there on the Web.

The Windows 10 operating system has made significant groundway over the last few years to offer something similar, and if you prefer a native solution to your operating system that doesn’t require any additional programs, you should check out how to use Windows 10 Quick Assist and see how you go.

But TeamViewer has been around for many years now, and many of its loyal users have been using the tool for a long time. Often that results in them not wanting to learn how to use a new tool, and they just want to keep using TeamViewer. With updates like what you will find in TeamViewer 12, we don’t blame them.

One of the things that people often do when remote connecting is try to communicate with text to one another so the person inside the other person’s computer knows what to do. Most desktop connection tools, including the older TeamViewer before this version, didn’t offer anything for users to chat with. Instead they just open up the Notepad application or a web browser and start typing. Now you’ll get a button from the TeaViewer 12 dashboard that opens up a little window to start conversations. That’s just one of the new features that makes TeamViewer 12 so great, and there are plenty more.

Other notable new features include Remote Quicksteps which offer links on the TeamViewer 12 toolbar that are commonly used links that people want to get access to when they’re remote connecting. With Remote Quicksteps you’ll find links to the Device Manager, Task Manager, Windows Update, Control Panel, and Programs and Features all just one click away and with the links already within your view.
