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!)

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 ...

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