Can someone provide some suggestions for reliable and easy-to-use remote access or screen sharing solutions?

I have been using a free service from TeamViewer for several years but since their latest version, I get a pop-up whenever I attempt remote access which states I am required to upgrade to a paid service in order to have that functionality.

By the way, my screen sharing needs are not commercial, but personal (due to paralysis from quadriplegia).

I have a desktop PC as well as a hybrid laptop/tablet and both are running Windows 10. I want to have unattended access in either direction so that I can transfer files as well as see and work on one system from the other.

I'm sure there are a number of different solutions but I'm hopeful that someone here can point me to one which they have found to be simple, straightforward and reliable — and preferably free.
