Remote Desktop software are useful for those, who are working on a project in a team, and who want online repair support for their Windows PC. There are lots of such remote desktop software out there, but we have chosen the best ones for you – so let’s have a look at them.

Remote desktop software for Windows

1. TeamViewer: Team Viewer is arguably the best and the fastest solution to remote desktop sharing and file sharing. There are no login processes at all, just an ID and a password, displayed on your Team Viewer window in every session.

To get started, what you need to do is open Team Viewer. You will see an ID and a Password, supply these credentials to the other user whom you want to connect with. If you want to connect with someone else, ask for the ID and password displayed on his/her Team Viewer window. Team Viewer shows fast real-time results and the screen sharing is just awesome.

2. Mikogo: You might have even read about this free tool earlier on The Windows Club. Mikogo lets you easily make a web conference or a group video chat. With this tool, you can easily share your screen/files or even text. This is an easy to use and free software.

You can even Lock and Pause your session using the two buttons at the top. You can check the Create Session Log check box if you want a log after your session. The speed of the program is good, and so is the interface. It is very easy to use, and I would say a user-friendly interface, with some animations.

3. Skype: You might be amazed to see Skype in this post. Well, friends, after some comparisons and tests, I’ve felt that the screen sharing option available in Skype performs really well and it shows a good quality while you share your screen with others.

To share your screen, right-click a contact and click on Share screens. You can select Entire Screen or Select Windows. The rest is easy and self-explanatory.

    Nice article regarding remote desktop software’s. TeamViewer is good, but quality of screen sharing is not good in Skype. Additionally, I have tried various other remote desktop screen sharing services such as logmeinrescue, gosupportnow, GoToMyPC etc. and they work well.

    I use Crossloop for all of my screen sharing uses. There is a Pro version, but the free version works just fine for me and my clients who just want their computers/laptops repaired.
