To install Teamviewer we just need to follow the steps of the installation assistant, choosing carefully some of the options that we will talk about in this guide. The first window of the assistant will ask us to mark various options.
We can choose “Run Only”, or one time use, if we don’t want the program to get installed and just try it out. “Installation to access this computer remotely” will make the program work in a server mode. If we choose “Basic installation” option, we will just have the client and the server installed to control our or other computers remotely.
TeamViewer is free for private non-commercial use, so if we are going to use it at home only we will need to mark “Personal/Non-Commercial use” option. Clicking on “Show advanced settings” link will allow us maximum personalization of the installation process.
If in the previous step we chose advanced settings link, we will now have the possibility to choose destination directory for the install, add remote print or VPN (virtual private network) and Outlook sinc option.
After that the program will get installed and we will see some images about general functioning of this software.
Now we have the program 100% ready to use, but we still can configure it the way we want by clicking on EXTRAS and OPTIONS. There we will see a settings panel offering us various options.
In this first window we can choose TeamViewer to start together with Windows, username and assign an account to access our computer from anywhere in remote control mode. In Security tab we can choose a personal password and other random password for spontaneous access. From here we can also activate Windows logon. In remote control mode we can set specific image quality as well as record our sessions.
We can also specify image quality in meeting mode and default settings of meeting sessions. This menu also allows us to configure meeting sound settings and many other options of TeamViewer quality and behavior.
In advanced settings we have complete control over TeamViewer behavior and its connections. Here we can restrict sessions depending on the user and choosing ports and protocols the way we want them to be.
As we could see in this guide, the installation and configuration process of TeamViewer is quite simple and we don’t really need to modify any predetermined setting. Anyway, all these options can be customized. You may browse other sections of our website for more similar free programs.
