TeamViewer is a popular, easy to use desktop sharing tool, now available for U3 sticks.
As soon as your friends and relatives find out that you know a bit about computers, it's all over. They'll be asking you for help with the most varied tech issues on a constant basis, as if you were a permanent, free customer support service.
Luckily you can count on TeamViewer to lend you a hand. The full version of TeamViewer lets you gain access to the desktops of your friends, relatives or even customers in a snap, and now you can make use of it on a U3 stick. What's more, it doesn't require any technical skills on the remote side, making it incredibly easy to use.
A bit like Online Desktop Presenter, all you have to do is run TeamViewer and ask the other person to run it as well. Each time you run TeamViewer you'll be given a unique session number and password which you can use to enter the other person's PC. This means TeamViewer can be used for both entering a remote computer and letting another person enter yours in case you need remote assistance as well.
Beside viewing the remote desktop just as if you were sitting in front of it, you can also make use of TeamViewer's features: embedded chat client, file transfer tool, the possibility of recording the session, and more.
This portable version of TeamViewer is a stripped-down version of the paid application and therefore lacks some extra modules and functionality. Nevertheless it's still a great helper when you need to fix small problems in remote systems or show someone else how to do a certain task on the computer.
TeamViewer's U3 stick version is an excellent desktop sharing tool that lets you manage remote systems in a safe way and without requiring a lot of technical knowledge.
