At times it can be hard to figure out how to use Windows default Remote Desktop Application. Especially if you are connecting to another computer over the internet. There can be a lot settings involved which need to be taken care of before you can start a remote session. There are many third-party solutions which you can use if you want to regularly access a particular PC. But what if you want to help a friend? It will be too time consuming to ask him/her to download some third party solution so that you can start screen sharing. And not to forget you need to have the same software so that you can communicate.
Join.me makes life a lot simpler when it comes to screen sharing. The individual who wants to initiate remote session needs to download a small application from their website. Once you are done. Just double click and a console will open with your computer id written on it. Ask the individual with whom you want to share the screen to enter this id on join.me and join the session.
And that is it! No settings, nothing involved. It is as simple as that!
It is available for both Windows & OS X.
