Control computers and run demonstrations remotely

Distant Desktop is free remote desktop software that very easily provides control of one or more machines from your keyboard. Whether your machine is the controller or the controlled computer, remote administration is easily undertaken. As the administrator, using your mouse you can run applications on a remote computer, move or resize windows, access files or, using your keyboard, you can type or edit a text file.

Downloading and running the application provides you with a unique ID and password, a Demonstration Mode toggle, and a Connect button. Demonstration Mode enables others only to view your desktop without any ability to control the keyboard or cursor. Using the Connect button and clicking the '+' sign on the title bar enables you to input the ID and Password of the remote machine. When you enter the ID and password of the remote computer and connect, and its desktop is displayed within your Distant Desktop interface.

The easy-to-use interface is headed by a title bar containing tabs for Send File, Receive File, Send Message, Speak for access to all the available options, as well as a File Menu tab.

The File menu enables you to access Set Display Name, Password and Whitelist, as well as the online Manual. The Send Message and Speak windows are also accessible. The Password setting lets you check to generate a random password every time or set a static password and the Whitelist lets you list trusted IDs preventing any unauthorized connection to your computer.

The remote admin software is useful for both business and school. Examples include:

  • Technical support
  • Presentations
  • Teaching lessons to individual students or entire classes
  • Project collaboration

For home use, it's an excellent application for helping friends and family members in distant locations. Distant Desktop is compatible with 32- and 64-bit Windows 7 to 10.
