  1. Teamviewer is "Sucks". I used it for my many years and it had been great, but lately Teamviewer wants me to pay even though I use it to help classmates to troubleshoot computer, students with homework, etc. The moment I open teamviewer, within a minute, it shuts down and says "my free version has ended". It's damn annoying. Windows Remote Desktop is sucks too. I tried it, but then it disables the client's computer screen. So what good is it if my client cannot see his/her screen to ask me for me? Dumb software. I keep asking Microsoft to make its software to be like teamviewer or buy teamviewer and have it integrated with Windows 10. Still nothing. Anydesk, ahh. Again, not the best compared to teamviewer. Sometimes it connects, and sometimes it doesn't. It lags on some people's computer when I try to help them to troubleshoot computer problems.
  2. Remember when TeamViewer didn't constantly give you that "COMMERCIAL USE DETECTED" notification? Good times...
  3. Any tips on how to keep Google Remote Desktop from Disconnecting you when using tools such as the brush tool in Photoshop?

    When I select the brush tool, Chrome Remote disconnects me saying the software is using an older version.

    Chrome remote will not reconnect until I go to the remote computer and click off the brush tool. The same thing happens with the clone tool.
