WFH Meaning, The current state of affairs, you’re probably working right now in a way that maybe you’ve never worked before, and that probably includes these massive video calls where you’re doing zoom meetings or hangouts or something like that with people and working on machines.
You may not be used to working in spaces where you are not completely used to working and for some of you who use files and operating systems that you are not completely familiar with, thankfully there is a service called remote desktop and there are many different remote desktops you could use
But Google has created one that is very easy to configure, called Chrome Remote Desktop. About four years have passed. They have recently updated it to where it is almost entirely a web based portal from which you can basically control a remote computer.
If you have a device that is in your office and you have some files that you would really like to have continuous access to. but you don’t have something you can pick up and take home. This is one way you can really connect it to that computer to fully control it, whatever you need to do, send files and emails you can do, whatever you want on that remote device directly from any device in front of you.

This is a remote Chrome desktop. so if you have a device that will run Chrome on a macbook, a Windows device any of those things. will run the Chrome remote desktop. we want to go and show you how to simply configure this. so you can start accessing your things in your office while you’re at home.

This is very simple, but we want to take you step by step through how to configure Chrome Remote Desktop and one of the requirements that you must have is the device that you are connecting to remotely. The host device must be a Windows, Linux or Mac machine. There is something small that you can download and install. it is basically the host controller. There are ways to get it working on a Chromebook. I don’t recommend that the benefit of Chrome OS is that you log in to any Chromebook you have and use your stuff. so that’s a benefit for us.
