AnyDesk is a ground-breaking remote desktop program that, as its name indicates, allows you to access your computer irrespective of your location so long as you are connected to the Internet. You can also use the application to offer technical assistance to someone else remotely.
- No lags
- No limits
- New high-performance video codec
AnyDesk is quite lightweight, being only 1.1 MB. We ran it as a portable application, which was the default mode. However, you may install it if you want. The clean interface made it easy for us to use the program, and we could connect to another computer running the program from the main window. We had the option to connect to multiple computers simultaneously.
To access our computer remotely, we typed our AnyDesk address on a remote computer and granted access when they had connected. The program allowed us to have unattended access of our computer remotely by setting a password. We could also configure security permission for a remote user.
One of the things we loved about the application was the fact that we used files directly from our computer. The program did not store data in the cloud. It worked seamlessly with all our desktop applications, and we could collaborate with others using such features as mouse cursor for each user. The program eliminates communication problems by making it easy to direct peers to what’s important.
The new high-performance video codec allows the program to work without lag. It works smoothly with low Internet speeds of 100 KB/S and performs relatively well even with lower bandwidths. Since the program’s latency is less than 60 milliseconds, what you type appears on a remote computer in real time. In addition, the application transmits data at high speeds of up to 60 frames per second, which further enhances smooth on-screen movement.
AnyDesk is also suitable for remote administration purposes. For example, we used it to install new software on a colleague’s computer.
AnyDesk provides a simple solution for remote desktop access, which any PC user can handle even without prior experience with remote software. The intuitive user interface is easy to understand, and the program provides fast connection. The program is free for casual private use.
