In this guide, I’ll be showing you how to control Android from PC. Think of a situation where your remote friend or a family member wants to access some online account of yours through their Android smartphone for some purpose and you don’t want to tell him / her your account password, what would you do? Obviously you won’t share it straightaway. So entering the password yourself is the only option left. This can be achieved by establishing a remote connection between a remote person’s Android device and your PC. TeamViewer is a popular software that can mirror remote Android device’s screen onto your desktop and vice versa.
TeamViewer can be used for several other purposes like helping some remote person for solving his device issues, setting or tuning up his Android, access his system files (if rooted) to make changes there itself, or anything you can think of.
Two different parts are being covered in this article.
How to Control Android from PC / Desktop
Step 2 – Open the QuickSupport app on the phone and note down the ID number.
Note: Do not close the app on phone even after noting the ID. It has to be kept open to accept an incoming connection request.
Step 3 – Now open TeamViewer on desktop and enter the ID you just noted in the Partner ID field. Click on the ‘Connect to Partner’ button. A prompt for incoming connection should appear on the phone app. Simply press ‘Allow’.
Step 4 – After the connection is established between the two, some interface windows should appear on desktop stating CPU, Battery, RAM, etc. Now find the ‘Remote Control’ button at the top left corner of the screen and select it. This will prompt permission on the phone so again allow the connection.
That’s it! The phone interface will now appear on your desktop.
Now the other part is a converse of the first part.
How to Control PC from an Android device
Step 1 – Install TeamViewer app on PC and Android.
Step 2 – Open TeamViewer software on PC and note down ‘Your ID’.
Step 3 – Enter that ID number in Android’s TeamViewer app and press the ‘Remote Control’ button. When it prompts for a password, enter 4 digit code you get from PC software.
As soon as the connection establishes between the two, your phone will start mirroring the PC screen.
Steps are pretty easy to understand here. Still, if you have any concerns, write it down in the comment section. We’ll get it to sort out.
