You can share your PC screen with another PC (say with your friend) with this method.
And Secret Tip: It is easier than the previous method.
First, ask your friend to follow the same steps of ‘PC settings’ in the previous method. Once he has added Chrome Remote desktop extension in his Chrome follow these steps.
- Now again visit ‘remotedesktop.google.com/access’. There are two options “Remote Access” and second is “Remote Support”.
- And now tap on the Support option.
- Again there are two Options “Get support” and “Give support”.
- If you want to share your PC screen with your friend then you have to click on generate code under Get Support and ask your friend to enter that code in Give Support.
- And vice versa if you want to access your friend’s PC screen.
