I agree with Teamviewer, and yes it is very easy. They will launch TeamViewer and then give you an ID and password that displays on their end. Once you put that info into YOUR TeamViewer, the connection is established and you will see their screen and have the ability to take control of the mouse, chat, and even transfer files. The ID and password changes with every session for security, so they will not need to worry about you having continuous access to their computer.

Do you know if transfer speed is any good or should I use Dropbox for file transfer

Dropbox would be quicker.  Im not 100% sure but they may not allow file transfer in the free version of Teamviewer.  I know they do in the paid version.

There are lot of free remote access sw available 

1.TeamViewer

TeamViewer is easily the best free remote access software I've ever used. There are tons of features, which is always great, but it's also extremely easy to install. No changes to router or firewall configurations are needed.With support for video, voice calls, and text chat, TeamViewer also allows file transfers, supports wake-on-LAN (WOL), and can even remotely reboot a PC into Safe Mode and then reconnect automatically.

2. Remote Utilities

3.AMMYY Admin

4.Areo Admin

 

Regards,

Christian

      The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is out, but if you are not in the initial wave of the roll-out, it may be some time before you get the update. Fortunately, you can manually download and install it. The Windows 10 Fall Creators update tweaks and streamlines existing features, as well as adding cool new ones.

      Get the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

      The Windows 10 Fall Creators update may already be pending for your system. To check, type in Windows Update into your search box, check for updates, and see if there is one waiting to install. If it says you are currently up to date, you can manually force the Windows 10 Fall Creators update by downloading it here: Windows 10 Fall Creators Download. The download tool checks your system for compatibility, and once it is determined your system specs can run it, the download can begin. A reboot is required to install the Windows Update.
