ShowMyPC is a feature-rich and powerful remote control utility and networking collaboration tool for windows pc that’s designed that is designed to connect and remotely access any Home or Office PC with ease via the Internet and control that workstation just like you would be in front of the monitor. The screen sharing software comes with a broadcasting feature which can be used to perform demos, perform web conferences, train employees, and other such functions. It also provides you with chat facilities which help you communicate if the party, on the other hand, is signed in.
The remote screen sharing software is relatively easy to use, even for those who have little technical skills or who have never used remote collaboration software before. The application is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10. Installing the software takes just a few minutes and the automatic installer takes care of setting up all necessary components that work behind the scenes to allow remote access to a PC. Both the user sharing their PC and the one connecting to it install the application on their system.
There is also a Java version available on the ShowMyPC, which can be used to access a remote computer without having to install the Windows application. This can be a big plus if one needs to share their desktop with a Mac or Linux user. Once both users have launched ShowMyPC, the one sharing their PC simply clicks on the “Show My PC Now” button, which makes the program automatically generate a password to be provided to the other user. The user on the viewing end just needs to hit the “View Remote PC” button and enter the password provided by the host.
ShowMyPC has a basic chat and whiteboard feature that lets both users communicate without having to use another messenger program. Other features included are the ability to share only a specific application, screenshots and scheduled meetings. More advanced users can set up the program to connect through a proxy or private SSH server if needed.
