Remote access made more convenient with keyboard shortcuts

December 18, 2018

The competitive decider of a remote desktop tool is arguably its convenience. Does the remote desktop access software make working on remote computers seem almost as comfortable as working on local computers? If yes, it makes for a reliable solution. With this as one of the goal, RemotePC offers an array of features and functionalities that together ensure enhanced user experience. Enabling the input of keyboard shortcuts on remote computers is one such feature.

Once remotely connected to your computer, enable the 'Send Key Combinations' functionality under the 'Actions' tab and you can start using keyboard shortcuts such as Ctrl + C for copy and Ctrl + V for paste. If you are accessing your computer on a mobile device, simply tap the 'keyboard' icon to enable the on-screen keyboard. Tap on the 'special functions keyboard' icon and you can start using Ctrl, Alt, Shift, Insert, and other special functions.

That's not all! Here are a few other RemotePC features that add value to the remote session experience:

  • Chat - Instantly send and receive messages between remotely connected computers.
  • Sticky Notes - Make notes on the screen of the partner computer and if needed, save the note in the local drive for later viewing.
  • Whiteboard - Collaborate with the associate on the remote end of the connection by drawing on their screen.
  • Remote Printing - Take printouts of docs, Excel sheets, PDFs, and images stored in your configured computers with a local printer.
  • Record Remote Sessions - Record and save remote session activities at a desired location on the local computer.
  • Multi-Screen Support - Easily work on two or multiple screens of the host computer using the 'Switch Monitor' functionality.
  • Blank Host Screen - Turn the screen of your remote computer black and enable complete privacy for your remote session.
  • Lock Functions - Lock the host computer during or at the end of a remote session using the 'Lock now' and 'Lock on session end' functionality.
