Windows 7 - How to Set Up Remote Access


Remote access allows you to connect to another computer, or to allow a service technician or technical support person to connect to your PC. That makes it easy to get service for your computer when you need it, allowing a technician to see exactly what is going on with your system.

These remote access features can, however, be a security threat, so they are turned off by default in the Windows 7 operating system. If you need to take advantage of remote access, you can turn it on by following these simple steps.
1. Click the Start button
2. Choose Control Panel from the list of icons
3. Double-click the System and Security section
4. Double-click the System icon
5. Click the Remote Settings tab
6. Click the check boxes for remote access
You can choose separate options and turn on one or both of them. You can allow others to connect to your computer, you can connect to other computers, or you can allow both options.
