How to: Use Teamviewer To Remotely Control Your PC from Your Android Device

There are lots of applications out there to remotely control your PC, and one of the easiest ones to use is Teamviewer. Most of you will probably be familiar with Teamviewer for your Windows PC or Mac but the application is also available on iOS and Android both of which are free. We’ll be looking at the Android version for now.

Unlike other apps that require you to forward ports or set up IP addresses for connecting to a PC, Teamviewer works flawlessly and doesn’t need much time to set up.

  • First of you need to go the Teamviewer website to download the Desktop app and set it up, this will give you a Unique Partner ID and Password.
  • Now go to the App market or head over HERE to download the mobile version of the app.
  • You now need to open the app, enter your PC’s Partner ID and Password and that’s it. Teamviewer connects you to your Desktop PC or laptop.

The program works flawlessly, with simple controls, pinch to zoom functionality, single finger clicks register as “left clicks on your mouse” and double finger clicks register as right clicks. You can move the cursor by panning the screen with one finger and you have shortcuts at the top and bottom of your device to perform functions such as bring up a full size virtual keyboard to type remotely on.
You can use the program to control your PC from afar, to play/pause movies or music, reply to someone on Messenger and basically do what you want. You could even use it in the same way to connect to your friend’s PCs to help them out if they need it.
Overall the app is great, it works as it should with my only problem being that it doesn’t offer more for the mobile version, you can’t for example stream music or videos from your PC onto your device, it simply acts as an input device, which is not such a bad thing as it keeps things simple and easy to use.

    I simply want to tell you that I’m new to weblog and certainly liked this web page. Likely I’m going to bookmark your blog post . You actually come with outstanding well written articles. Thanks for revealing your web site.

  3. I might love to retire where air conditioning is not needed, in addition to a dog park with benches is nearby.

  4. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

My blog covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!

I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for newbie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

  15. Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?

I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  16. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

  17. I made a few songs and I want to know how to alter the copyright content on an MP3 file so I can share it online? I want to add (p) Swagers Studios (2009) to the copyright content and was wondering if it was possible. Any help is greatly appreciated.. It’s still not letting me edit the copyright content. Ive noticed that some MP3’s I downloaded off the net have unofficial copyrights like ZOMG company. If you can’t help it’s okay.

  19. Hi!. I would like to have an online store using blogger and paypal. Any ideas how to do it? Could you please give me step by step instructions? I appreciate it. Thanks!.

  20. Great blog post. A few things i would like to contribute is that computer system memory must be purchased but if your computer is unable to cope with whatever you do along with it. One can set up two random access memory boards containing 1GB each, as an example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one having 2GB. One should make sure the car maker’s documentation for one’s PC to be sure what type of ram is needed.
