Free Remote Desktop Tool

Setting up remote access to your computers can come in handy, but many of the most popular options that used to be free now charge a fee.

If you can't justify paying for this capability, checkout Google's simple and free Chrome Remote Desktop.

You don't have to be a techie or a nerd to set it up because it's just an add-on to the Chrome Browser on the computers that you want to setup for remote access.

It's super flexible so any Windows, Mac or Linux computer can be used to access your computer remotely; it'll be just as if you're sitting in front of it.

You can even use your smartphone, tablet or Chromebook to remotely access your computers.

I've used it from all over the world to access my computers back home when I need something that's stored on it.

This is one of the easiest to use yet fully functioning remote tools that's still free to use.

Setting the system up only takes a few minutes, so I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a free remote solution.
