AnyDesk: Smooth work thanks to low latency
Thanks to the specially developed DeskRT codec, the software enables short latency times. This means that work on the remote PC goes smoothly. You can access the monitor, keyboard and mouse and also transfer sounds.
After starting the software, you will be assigned an AnyDesk address, which you must give to all users who are to be granted access to your desktop. To protect your PC from unauthorized access, you must allow all sessions individually. Alternatively, password protection is also possible.
The slim tool does not require installation – so you can also use AnyDesk portable on the USB stick. Due to the restriction to essential functions, the user interface looks very tidy and is easy to use. If you want, you can now control your computer remotely with the free Android app.
