Remotely Control Your Computer

With Chrome Remote Desktop teachers can control their desktop computer with a tablet or smartphone. Think about how beneficial this could be - teachers can be mobile in their classrooms without being restricted to a location near their desktop computer.
Open Chrome. Visit the Chrome Web Store and search for the Chrome Remote Desktop App. Click the blue + Add to Chrome Button. After authorizing the app for the first time, you will be able to install it.

Step 2: Install Chrome Remote Desktop

Locate the Remote Desktop on your computer. Double-click the file to run the installer. After following the on-screen directions, choose a numeric PIN (Phone Number). After successfully reentering a PIN, you will get a confirmation message stating "Remote connections for this computer have been enabled."

Step 3: Access your computer (from another device)

From a device other than your original computer - Open the Chrome Remote Desktop App. From the list of computers enabled with this app, choose the computer you would like to control. Enter the PIN that you set up on your original computer. Click Connect.

Step 4: Access another computer (that is shared with you)
