Looking for a web browser based solution to connect to a remote computer. I have a family member in another state (who is elderly and tech challenged) for which I need to connect to her computer for support reasons. I normally would use TeamViewer but the process to get it installed on that machine will be confusing her ... even loading up the TeamViewer Quick Start application. They just don't read the screens like we do ... and once the process leave the browser they will be lost having to find the download and start it running.
There used to be a web browser application called join.me where all the host had to do was type join.me in the browser address bar and a prompt would be presented with two options ... Share or Join. They would click Share and a password would be generated that they would give to the person trying to connect with their computer. I would put in the password on the Join side of my browser app and then you could share screens.
Looks like this application has changed now and it will require a lot more configuration on the host end such as setup to Host a meeting then invite others to Join which will present the same problems as stated above. Does anyone know of a simple way I can connect remotely to that computer that will not present some problems for someone who is computer challanged??? I only need it for this one time as once connected, I will install TeamViewer with a Shortcut on the Desktop so that all they have to do is click on it.
