Access and control your PC from anywhere

Computer remote access comes in very handy when you need to control your home PC from work and viceversa. It's also a fast, efficient way to help a friend or a customer with software installation and configuration. But remote control apps are usually difficult to use and hog system resources.

Well, not anymore: now LogMeIn Pro 2 makes remote control easier than ever by providing you a simple, fast and free tool to access your PC from anywhere. All you have to do is download the client, create an account on their website, and you're ready to go.

The client should be installed and launched in the computers you want to access remotely. Then all you need to do is start your session in the LogMeIn webpage – either using a browser extension or a Java web-based client - and you'll have immediate access to the remote computer.

LogMeIn displays a highly detailed dashboard with all sorts of information about the remote computer: system data, currently active processes, network traffic, hard drive information... You'll be able to manage files, transfer data from the local machine to the remote machine and viceversa, and even control the desktop and mouse in the remote PC, with a surprisingly quick response to mouse movements. LogMeIn features also interesting extra features with which to chat with the user on the other side of the connection, or record the whole session in video.

On the downside, image resolution is obviously not very high when remote controlling (forget about viewing photos in the remote PC). Also, the Java-based file manager sometimes feels a bit clunky but that's probably due to Java itself. In all, I think LogMeIn is one of the best remote control apps I've tried.

LogMeIn Pro is an excellent remote control application that features everything you need to manage remote systems and provide technical assistance.

This program is Windows 11 compatible.
