Provides remote control and file transfer over the Internet, even behind firewalls and allows users to run presentations remotely
When your computer breaks down, one of the first things you do is probably to call your tech-savvy friend and ask them to fix your PC. Since it is quite cumbersome to explain the errors via phone or via chat, it is best to provide them with first-hand access to your computer using TeamViewer Portable.
As it is a portable application, neither you nor your buddy need to actually install any software on your computers, yet a connection between the two PCs is created so that the friend can not only access, but also control your desktop and apps.
TeamViewer Portable basically relies on computer IDs and passwords that need to be entered so that a user can access a remote workstation. Once the connection is established, a wide range of actions can be performed, including switching sides with the connected PC, locking or rebooting it.
Additionally, the screen resolution can be easily adjusted and the wallpaper can be deactivated, which can come in handy if the Internet connection is not very powerful and it takes a long time for the user to access the remote desktop.
Another useful function of TeamViewer Portable is that it supports multiple simultaneous users connected to a PC, rather than restricting this to a single remote user. In other words, you can ask several of your friends to work together and repair whatever issues or crashes your PC might encounter.
It is also possible for them to transfer files, remotely print files, capture screenshots or record the desktop activity so as to get all the needed data to identify and fix the problem.
All in all, TeamViewer Portable is not only an intuitive application that can be of great use when it comes to remote connections, but it can also perform an array of additional functions that would otherwise require expert skills and extra software installed on the PC.
