Hey gang -

I'm trying to configure remote assistance using group policy -

I'm able to connect to the users desktop but I can only get view only....
I'd like to be able to have remote control....

What am I missing?  this will be a great tool if I can get it to work  (No more traveling to the users desktop!)

Hi javajo,

Somewhere on the upper left side should be an option to take control for you.
Also have a look at this nice professor windows article ...

Correct - they need to allow you to either view or interact -

But i only see the option to view only on their screen
