How to Use LogMeIn to Control Another Computer. LogMeIn is a program that lets you take control of another computer from anywhere in the world. With this tool, you can easily access all the important files on your work computer when you’re at home or on vacation. It’s also used by tech professionals to help you fix problems with your computer remotely. Here’s how to install and use LogMeIn to access another computer.
How to Use LogMeIn to Control Another Computer
To control another computer with LogMeIn, open the LogMeIn Client app and select the computer you want to access. Then click the computer icon and sign in using the other computer’s username and password.
Note: Before you can control another computer, make sure that both computers have LogMeIn installed and running.
- Open the LogMeIn Client App and sign in.
- Then click the other computer you want to access. You will only see this if the other computer accepted your invitation and clicked the link you sent them from the previous steps.
- Then click the computer icon. This is the icon that looks like a computer monitor with a mouse pointer. It is located to the left of the house and folder icons.
- Then enter the login credentials for the computer you want to access. You will need to enter the username and password of the computer you’re about to control, not the one you’re currently using. This is the username and password that is used to log in to the computer when it starts up.
You will then see a window with the other computer’s screen. Once you click inside this window, you will control the pointer on the other computer with your mouse. Also, any keys that you hit on your keyboard will type on the other computer. If you want to control your computer, simply move the mouse outside the LogMeIn window and click anywhere. This will cause the LogMeIn window to turn black and white.
You can also access another computer by using the LogMeIn website and going to Computers > Add Computer. Then click Generate Link and paste the link in an email and send it to the other user.
If you want someone else to control your computer, such as a professional technician from HelloTech, it’s easy to share your desktop with them, too.
