Best remote solution

Hi experts,
I have a client that we support they have 2 offices, windows 10 on one site and windows 7 on the other, 5 machines per site and the bosses  want the ability to jump onto one of their machines from either office and screen share with employees.
Is there a economical product anyone can recommend?
Thanks in advance

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

From the link provided, I prefer the builtin access of Microsoft Remote Desktop, then Teamviewer which I have used on remote non-domain stand alone machines.

RDP is remote access approach to Windows-based machines, it's not exactly intended for "screen sharing" approach. It's more geared towards allowing access remotely to a system an ability to work on it for a single user.
Logmein insanely expensive, AnyDesk is more affordable.

I'm an advocate of team viewer.   On any PCs I repair, I include a copy of their "QuickSupport" (standalone client) with the other tools I load.  It does not require any install and my customers can easily start it up when they need my help.   For remote folks that call for help, but don't have my preloaded tools, its easy enough to talk them through downloading it and getting it started.

see:  https://www.teamviewer.us/

On my side I of course run the installed version of teamviewer.  It lets me see and operate the remote PC, copy files in either direction, print to their printer, or to mine from either side, has a chat window and has been very reliable.  

One trick!  After placing the client on the target PC adjust its properties to run as administrator.  Otherwise some activities that require an approval can't be clicked remotely.  The user on the other end can click it for you, but its just easier if I can do it myself.

Hi Experts, the client hasn't come back, but I offered them Google remote desktop for free screen share and recommended teamviewer / logmein for a more commercial solution. Thanks
