May 6th - TeamViewer: a Remote Control, Desktop Sharing and File transfer Between Computers App
Using Windows 10 Quick Assist to Remotely Troubleshoot PC Problems

APCUG Speakers Bureau presenter John Kennedy will show us why TeamViewer is a great tool for providing tech support.  Do you get called upon to help others with their computer problems?  This can be difficult now with social distancing, but TeamViewer can help by allowing the person helping to see and remotely access the computer of the person having the problem.  It works across all platforms and is free for non-commercial use.

Windows 10 Quick Assist is a built-in application that makes it easy to help friends, family members and club members with PC problems. In this APCUG Speakers Bureau presentation, Bill James will show how it can allow someone you trust to access your computer and help solve your problem remotely.  You will learn the steps used to connect and disconnect to and from a Windows 10 PC.
