****从 CES 一路等到今后，小姜终于玩到 Eee Keyboard
的单身操作系统，而是跑 Windows XP 的 — 正确的说，旁边这几个小显示屏，才是
Eee Keyboard 的主显示屏，接到计算机显示器或电视机上的，才是 Eee Keyboard
的次荧屏。因而，鼠标理论上是足以从操作 Eee Keyboard
小显示屏上的事物的。Eee Keyboard 的触控软件是写在 WinXP 里的壹个顺序（像
EeeTop 那样），里头大部份是Computer内部的软件的飞速情势，但也会有MSN、Skype、音乐播放器等ASUS特意为了 Eee Keyboard
写的广播程序。因为具备的事物都在同二个操作系统下，用 Eee Keyboard
有多少个本子 — 有线版，和走 UWB
Keyboard 充二回电大概能够用两钟头，温度大约和平常的 Eee PC
十一分。这段时间照例未有上市日期或价格，不过看起来 Eee Keyboard
真的很适合当作为 MPC 来用呢！

—-We’ve been waiting to get our hands on the Eee Keyboard ever since
CES, and now we finally did! And guess what? It’s pure awesomeness!The
LCD on the keyboard is set at 800×480. Contrary to what we expected,
this monitor is actually a Sideshow-like stand alone OS running Windows
XP. More specifically, this LCDis actually the main monitor of Eee
Keyboard, and the external monitor is secondary. If this is true, then
theoretically you can control the things on this screen with a mouse. Of
course, this is totally unnecessary.Eee Keyboard has a touch-screen
application built right into WinxXP (just like the Eee Top), and it has
shortcuts to most of the included softwares. This includes MSN, Skype
and Music playback controls. This small app works surprisingly well, and
using the the small side screen to control things on the big monitor
works smoothly, too.Eee Keyboard will come in two flavors- a wired
version, and a wireless variant that uses UWB. The wireless one works
through UWB and a small receiver. The keyboard has a built-in battery
that lasts for about 2 hours. The temperature of this unit is about the
same as Eee PC.We still don’t have a word on the price nor the shipping
date. Nonetheless, it looks like a really suitable MPC.
VNC, or Virtual Network Computing, isn’t
itself a product, but an open-source remote-control and display
technology that’s implemented by Tight VNC (free), Ultra VNC (free) and
RealVNC (free and pay), among other parties. VNC isn’t hard to use, but
it’s not as simple as Join.me and TeamViewer, which don’t require user
knowledge of IP addresses.
VNC is a good option if you need to control multiple PCs regularly.
To use VNC, install it on both the PCs you want to connect and then set
them to listening. To control another PC, simply open the VNC viewer
(client), enter the PC’s IP address, and have at it. You may also have
to open port 5900 on your firewall and router, and to direct said port
to the PC you want to control.
You can use VNC to connect to multiple PCs behind a public IP by opening
and using more ports. Most VNC implementations install both the server
and viewer software by default, so (as with TeamViewer) you can control
in either direction.
Though it’s a tad difficult to set up, VNC is cross-platform (Windows,
Mac, Linux), and it works extremely well once installed.
Join.me is a meeting service (free and pay) from
LogMeIn that also provides remote control. It’s convenient for impromptu
support in that all you need on the controlling PC is a Web browser. The
user with the computer that will host the meeting (and offer control)
simply surfs to the Join.me site, selects Start Meeting, and downloads
Meeting service Join.me also offers remote access—all you need is a Web
After running said file, the meeting originator passes the provided
nine-digit passcode to the user or users on the other end, who in turn
enter the passcode in the Join Meeting field on the Join.me homepage.
The meeting originator’s desktop will appear in the browser. Once remote
control is granted, you can chat, send files, and more. Easy-peasy, but
note that Join.me isn’t suited for unattended remote control, which
makes it only a partial replacement for LogMeIn.
In most cases, Unity will handle keyboard input automatically for GUI
elements but it is also easy to show the keyboard on demand from a
Notice: Though I change the display language to English, there may still
some difference because I used it in China. And, of course, my English
is not good, but you can understand what I mean mostly.
Most users think of WebEx as a tool for
multiuser boardroom meetings, but it’s also perfectly suitable for
small-scale, live (not unattended) remote control and support. WebEx
works a little differently from Join.me in that installing software is
required at both ends, but that’s a relatively painless procedure.
WebEx: Not just for multiuser meetings.
Once users have joined the meeting, initially they can only view the
originator’s desktop, but the originator can make another person the
presenter, pass control over the mouse and keyboard, and share files,
chat, and utilize webcams for face-to-face interaction. There’s a bit of
a learning curve if you stray from the main features (available from the
usual drop-down panel at the top of the display), but overall WebEx is
quite easy to use.
OK, the first thing you should is that time I write this article is the
time after one month that the official release of Windows 10 desktop
version. The mobile version is still in the development and not related
to this article. This series of article is all talk about how to use the
Windows operating system in anyway. And this article is the first one
and it just want to help the most of people who new to Windows 10, to
help you works well with the new Windows.
Don’t get spoofed
Because of the popularity of remote-control and remote-meeting services,
the Web is rife with spoof sites (those that look very much like the
correct one, but aren’t) that will attempt to lure you in if you don’t
type the URL correctly. Downloading software from these sites can be
dangerous to your computer’s health, as well as to your wallet.
Sometimes the bad guys will try to sell you support.
The correct site addresses for the services I’ve mentioned are:
- TeamViewer —
- RealVNC —
- Join.me —
- WebEx Free —
Thanks to the growth in distributed and mobile workforces, the ability
to access and control a PC remotely is a must for workers and IT
administrators alike. That’s why we’ll all miss LogMeIn Free. But if you
really love one of these free alternatives, consider throwing a few
bucks to the developer. Who knows: Your contribution could help to keep
the program going for everyone.
0. TL, DR
Because each person has each situation, the truly short tour is just for
the people who migrate from Windows 8.x and can use Windows 8 advanced.
So, if you come from Windows 8 and just do not understand how to use
Windows 8, also, if come from Windows 7 you can follow the section 1 to
the section 1.2, and then jump to the section 2. Or, if you think it
doesn’t matter, the chapter 1 is so easy, then you can jump to the
chapter 2 directly.
2. Remote Utilities
Remote Utilities is a free remote access program with some really great
features. It works by pairing two remote computers together with what
they call an “Internet ID.” You can control a total of 10 PCs with
Install a portion of Remote Utilities calledHost on a Windows PC to
have permanent access to it. You also have the option to just
runAgent, which provides spontaneous support without installing
anything – it can even be launched from a flash
The host computer is given an Internet ID that they must share so a
client can make a connection.
The Viewer program is used to connect to the host or agent software.
The Viewer can be downloaded on its own or in the Viewer + Host combo
file. You can also download a portable version of the Viewer if you’d
rather not install anything.
Connecting the Viewer to the Host or Agent is done without any router
changes like port forwarding, making setup very easy. The client just
needs to enter the Internet ID number and password.
There are also client applications that can be downloaded for free for
iOS and Android users.
Different modules can be used from the viewer so you can actually access
a computer remotely without even viewing the screen, though
screen-viewing is definitely Remote Utilities’ main feature.
Here are some of the modules Remote Utilities allows: A remote task
manager, file transfer, power control for remote rebooting or WOL,
remote terminal (access to Command
remote file launcher, system information manager, text chat,
remote registry access,
and remote webcam viewing.
In addition to these features, Remote Utilities also supports remote
printing and viewing multiple monitors.

Unfortunately, configuring Remote Utilities may be confusing on the host
computer, as there are lots of different options.

well as Windows Server 2012, 2008, and 2003. More
1. If you haven’t use Windows 8.x before
The 8.x includes Windows 8, 8.1, and 8.1 update 1 and so on. If you have
use before and don’t dislike it, just browse quickly or jump this
section. Many people doesn’t like Windows 8, especially compare with
Windows XP and Windows 7. So that means there may some people just the

3. Ammyy Admin
Ammyy Admin is a completely portable remote access program that’s
extremely simple to setup. It works by connecting one computer to
another via an ID supplied by the program.
Run the Ammyy Admin software on the computer that you’ll be accessing.
There isn’t any installation, so you can get started pretty quickly. The
file is only 750 KB in size, so it also downloads fast.
From the menu called Ammyy, you can choose Service and then install
the Ammyy Admin service so you can access the PC without having to
manually run the program.
You can also just run the program and take note of the ID number so the
client can easily connect.
To connect to the Ammyy Admin host computer, just launch the portable
program and enter the ID of the other computer. The ID is shown on the
host computer’s Ammyy Admin program.
Now you can do things like use the host PCs clipboard, voice chat, and
transfer files to and from the computers.

1.1 What’s different between Windows 10 and Windows 7？
To many. But for many people, this question is just like the difference
between Windows 8 and Windows 7, so we talk this first.
Windows 10 shipped many technology from Windows 8, for example, the
Quick Access Toolbar of the File Explorer:
figure-1.1.1: the ribbon menu of File Explorer
Actually, this feature is come from the Office 2007, this kind menu can
let you use the normalized keyboard shortcut to access the function you
want. for example, like the figure-1.1.1 showed, we can use Alt+2 to
switch the display state of Hidden Items. If you release the key slowly,
you will see the keyboard indicator, like this:
figure-22.214.171.124: indicator shows after press Alt key
There are some useful keyboard shortcut workflow for the Quick Access
- customize the function you frequently use ( just right click the menu
and pin the function you want )
figure-126.96.36.199: right click (hold touch) to pin to the bar
- use the default group of keyboard shortcut, like: Alt+F, 1：
figure-188.8.131.52: use Alt+F,1 to open the Download folder
Now, the first thing different I have showed you. Personally, I prefer
four functions in the Ribbon menu:
- Open Command Prompt ( from here )
- Open Command Prompt as Administrator ( at here )
- Invert Selection
- Hidden Items
The Invert Selection is powerful for daily use. It can replace three
kind of operation: select all, cancel select all multi-selection with
invert selection. So, after I use the Windows 8, I seldom use the Ctrl+A
to select all files. And, the Hidden Items is also good. In the past, we
need to open the Folder Options and manually switch the state by open
and close the window again again. But one thing you should notice of the
Hidden Items checkbox is that the default settings of Windows is often
hidden all hidden files especially the file with system attribute. So,
if you need, just change it.
figure-184.108.40.206: hidden file options
OK. There are many different thing still. Another good feature is the
Win+x Super Menu:
figure-1.1.2: win+x menu
If you feel good with keyboard, that’s good news for you. With the super
menu, you can use it to access some important entry, like to shutdown,
you can just press: Win+x, u, u
What I frequent use is: Win+x ( C, A, G, M, W, P )，if you don’t
understand the C and P means, just notice the words in figure-2, and the
letter with underscore is the indicate character ( so the P means
Control Panel ).
Also, the most different thing compare with Windows 7, is the Start
Menu. Many people hate the Start Screen in Windows 8.x and think it just
like a blue shit.
Truly, maybe. But for personally use, I prefer the Start Screen in
Windows 8.1 because it’s good enough. Actually, the start menu in
Windows 7 have many hidden feature, such as you can use the search box
to find what you have noted on the StickyNot ( in Windows 8 it removed
this feature, maybe Microsoft prefer you to use the OneNote to take note
). And the search speed for file finding in Windows 7 faster than
Windows 8, truly. We don’t talk about the Start Menu of Windows 10 here,
because it’s quite different.
Another, and the last thing I want to write here, is the Task Manger.
Actually the taskmgr.exe of Windows 10 is shipped from Windows 8. After
Windows 8, you can use the task manger to manager more thing if you
want, like the services, the startup program etc. And, the manager has
two mode, one is simple to use, another is advance enough.
figure-1.1.3: click the Fewer detail to switch back to the simple mode
Remember, the task manager is just one of the built-in feature new in
the Windows 8. There are some other new built-in feature that may help
you forget some dependency of third-party software, for example ( note:
some feature is just available in the professional edition of Windows,
like Hyper-V ):
In Windows 8 you can mount an ISO or a VHD file directly without a
virtual CD drive.
For virtualization, you can use an optional built-in feature called
Hyper-v, note that this solution is not suitable for personal desktop
virtualization and not compatible to other virtualization platform such
the VMWare and the VirtualBox.
A built-in Anti-Virus software in running by default called Windows
Defender since Windows 8.
And also, there are some feature remove or become optional since Windows
the Briefcase feature is not completely removed because we have
OneDrive now. You can recall this old feature by editing the system
the desktop gadget since Windows Vista is discontinued because
Microsoft want you to focus on the new Windows Store App.
the Library feature is become optional because many people don’t know
how to use it in the right way.
That’s all. I don’t want to talk about the new Universal Windows App,
because it just start to running, and it easy to use so that I think
there isn’t need a guide for it ( unfortunately the official tutorial
does). Now we talk about Windows 10 and Windows 8.
Another remote access program is UltraVNC. UltraVNC works a bit like
Remote Utilities, where a server and vieweris installed on two PCs,
and the viewer is used to control the server.
When you install UltraVNC, you’re asked if you wish to install
the Server, Viewer, or both. Install the Server on the PC you wish
to connect to.
You can install the UltraVNC Server as a system service so it’s always
running. This is the ideal option so you can always make a connection to
it with the client software.
To make a connection with the UltraVNC Server, you must install the
Viewer portion during setup.
After configuring port forwarding in your router, you’ll be able to
access the UltraVNC server from anywhere with an Internet connection –
either via a mobile device that supports VNC connections, a PC with the
Viewer installed, or an Internet browser. All you need is the Server’s
IP address to make the connection.
UltraVNC supports file transfers, text chat, clipboard sharing, and can
even boot and connect to the server in Safe Mode.
UltraVNC 220.127.116.11 Review & Free
The download page is a little confusing – first select the most recent
UltraVNC version, and then choose the 32-bit or 64-bit setup file that
will work with your edition of Windows.
Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP, and Windows Server 2012, 2008, and 2003
users can install and use UltraVNC. More
1.2 What’s different between Windows 10 and Windows 8.x？
First, the appearance is cool, except the default lock screen
Second, you have two mode to operate the system: desktop mode and tablet
mode. In desktop mode, you can not use the app split screen feature in
Windows 8, because you don’t need that. Now the Windows Universal App
can work in the single window, besides the full screen way in Windows 8.
And, like Windows 8 and Windows 7, you can use desktop split screen
function to set four windows to grid quickly on screen. And more
importantly, desktop mode can use a new feature call Virtual Desktop (
Mac user may familiar with ). However, because tablet mode can
compatible with split screen, virtual desktop feature is disable and can
not use desktop style split screen.
figure-1.2.1: virtual desktop pick up
Third, the default app is better than before. In Windows 8, Windows
Store App often works slowly and strangely, including some built-in
figure-1.2.2: windows 10 app show
The last, the important thing, is the Start Menu and Cortana. Why I talk
these two thing in one place is that functionally the Start Menu and
Cortana share some normal usage, like application navigation. The quick
way to find a app is release the Win key and type the name ( application
title or the program file name ) you want. For instance, the built-in
program, Paint. you can type ( not required the full name ) pai or msp
and then press Enter.
figure-1.2.3: app search
You see, when we use Win key to trigger the search, the Cortana will
show up. I don’t want to talk more about Cortana, the best way to learn
now is search a built-in app called: Get Started
There are many difference I still not concern, like: the Edge browser,
the transparent style of cmd, the new settings panel etc. But it doesn’t
matter because you know how to get started now. Anyway, if you can not
find the answer on the official help, just google it.
AeroAdmin is probably the easiestprogram to use for free remote
access. There are hardly any settings, and everything is quick and to
the point, which is perfect for spontaneous support.
AeroAdmin looks a lot like the TeamViewer program that tops this list.
Just open the portable program and share your IP address or the given ID
with someone else. This is how the client computer will know how to
connect to the host.
The client PC just needs to run the same AeroAdmin program and enter the
ID or IP address into their program. You can choose View
only or Remote Control before you connect, and then just
select Connect to request remote control.
When the host computer confirms the connection, you can start
controlling the computer, sharing clipboard text, and transferring

Manual Keyboard Handling
1.3 What’s different between Vista and Windows 7
Not so much. In Windows Vista, you can not use win+left key to dock your
window to the left side, and some other keyboard shortcut is also
different, and also, you can not pin a program to the taskbar. Except
that, not so much different you need to remember. The story of Windows
Vista is a sad story, also the Windows 8. Not the system is too bad, but
they lost because they change too more.
At last, there may some built-in tools you should know in Windows 7:
- Sticky Note, a simple note tool, sometimes is better than OneNote I
- Snipping tool, a simple tool from you to create a screenshot and

No software needs to be installed to use Windows Remote Desktop. To
enable connections to a computer with Windows Remote Desktop, you must
open the System Properties settings and allow remote connections via a
particular Windows user through the Remote tab.
You do have to setup your router for port forwarding so another PC can
connection to it from outside the network, but this is usually not that
big of a hassle to complete.
The other computer that wishes to connect to the host machine must
simply open the already installed Remote Desktop Connection software
and enter the IP address of the host.

1.4 Directly from Windows XP
This section is for those people who doesn’t familiar with Windows Vista
There are a large different between Windows XP and Windows Vista because
the system kernel they used is quite different. The kernel version of
Windows XP is NT 5.2, and the Vista is 6.0, Windows 7 is 6.1, Windows 8
is 6.2, 8.1 is 6.3, and the Windows 10 originally is NT 6.4. You don’t
need to know so much, what you can see is that from 5.x to 6.x is a big
So this means that you may need more time to adapt with Windows 10
though it’s not difficult. Just remember, follow the official get
started guide ( I mentioned above ) and try to use some keyboard
shortcut. I don’t want to show you what is the different, because all I
showed you above is what is the important.
In the times we use the Windows XP, due to the lack of the function of
original system, we use many third-party tool to enhance the ability.
Many third-party tool can still work in new system like Windows 10,
however, nowadays some tool maybe can be replaced by the original system
feature ( like the ISO file mount I’ve mention before ).
And, the last thing you should remember is that the Refresh function on
the right click menu is mostly useless.
RemotePC, for good or bad, is a more simple free remote desktop program.
You’re only allowed one connection (unless you upgrade) but for many of
you, that’ll be just fine.
Download the Remote Access Host software and install it on the PC that
will be accessed remotely. Windows and Mac are both supported.
You must create an account with RemotePC and then login through the host
to complete the setup of the host PC.
There are three ways to access the RemotePC host from a different
computer: via theRemote Access Viewer program you can install on your
computer, through the iOS or Android app, or login to your RemotePC
account through a web browser.
You’ll be able to receive sound from the remote PC, record what you’re
doing to a video file, access multiple monitors, transfer files, and
text chat. Some of those features aren’t available if the host and
client computers are running different operating systems.

too old and it doesn’t use Windows NT kernel. And Windows 2000 you can
just use it as Windows XP does.

2.1 File operation
Why I place the file to the first class is that so-called modern
operating system is base on this a kind of blue shit concept. Even if
you use a mobile system like iOS, you still need to save email
attachment as a file. You can not change it unless you destroy the whole
word Information Technology structure.
You may say that I know what a file is, but you may not know what’s the
difference and how it works. I wouldn’t tell you the black magic of
file. All you need to know is that, a file is a set of data which

9. Chrome Remote Desktop
Chrome Remote Desktop is an extension for the Google Chrome web browser
that lets you setup a computer for remote access from any other Chrome
The way this works is that you first install the extension in Google
Chrome, then give authentication for remote access to that PC via a
personal PIN you create yourself.
This requires you to log on to your Google account.
To connect to the host browser, sign on to another Chrome browser with
the same Google credentials and install the same extension.
Because you’re logged in, you can easily see the other PC name, from
where you can simply choose it and begin the remote session.
There is simple copy/paste file sharing but there aren’t advanced
settings in Chrome Remote Desktop like you see with similar programs.
However, it’s very easy to setup and lets you or anyone else control and
view your computer from another Chrome browser.

2.1.0 File name
A file doesn’t know what itself was, so people think it should give a
name. and also a extension name, so the fullname of a file is may like
“user_guide.txt” or something else. This is a classic method to
recognize the file type, use the extesion name to declare what it should
be. But, what if a file without a extension name? Don’t worry, so
software will detect the head binary sequence of a file, and try to open
it as some file type.
On modern Windows operating system (since NT 5.0), the display filename
doesn’t include the extension name by default. because in the past many
people do not understand what the hell it is, and some will try to
rename it without the original extension name, and then, they and their
file will lost the way basically. By default, a file without extension
name will show a empty white file icon of it. you don’t know what it
was, you don’t know how to operate it. So, There is an stupid way to
hide your data, change the extension name into another one. Remember,
some extension name is reserved by Windows, like “.lnk”, the extension
name of file shortcut. Once you change a file’s extension name to it,
you need to use command prompt to rename it if you want to change back.
Also, there is something you should know:
filename have a finite length, and can not use some reserve character,
and a file’s fullname under a folder must be unique
So, why talk about filename? is that valuable?
Maybe, if you knew the extension name, then you will basically filter
the file with some string like *.xls or img*.* etc. The * character
you saw is called wildcard character. If you want to know more, just
search how to use the regular expression.
One thing you should also remember is that the legal
on Windows maybe illegal on other OS such Linux or OS X. This is a
historical reason, So, once you need to give a filename, just follow
your heart and forget most character you need to type with the shift

2.1.1 File path
File path is something like your home address, like the world, is unique
on your computer. there are many kind of path syntax, on Windows,
“C:\a.txt” or “file:///C:/a.txt” is legal. But Unix style like
“C:/a.txt” is not.
Each file have its path. If you need to start a program, you need a file
path of the program basically. If you need to use a program to open a
file, you also need a file path at low level.
What the “basically” and the “low level” means?
The “basically” is mean that even you don’t need to user Win+R to input
the program path, even you choose a shortcut on the start menu, the
program you running has its own path, basically. Because you can find
it, you can run it. If one day your shortcut notice you that it can not
found the program that means the program is gone.
The “low level” is mean that even if you can find a file with a open
file dialog box, you can still directly input the whole file path to
open it, like this:
figure-2.1.1: note that even it ask a filename, actually it just need a
This is not the whole magic of file path, another thing I will show you
is the Environment Variable. If you knew that, jump it.
Environment Variable is the truly black magic and I hate it. The normal
use of the Environment Variable is to abstract the file path. By using
the PATH environment Variable, you can ignore the file path and directly
call your program with theirs filename. For more information, see
LiteManager is another remote access program, and it’s strikingly
which I explain on the first page of this list.
However, unlike Remote Utilities, which can control a total of only 10
PCs, LiteManager supports up to 30 slots for storing and connecting to
remote computers, and also has lots of useful features.
The computer that needs to be accessed should install
the LiteManagerFree – Server.msi program, which is contained in the

computer. It can be done through the IP
computer name, or an ID.
The easiest way to set this up is to right-click the server program the
notification area, chooseConnect by ID, erase the contents that are
already there, and click Connected to generate a brand new ID.
The other program, called Viewer, is installed for the client to connect
to the host. Once the host computer has produced an ID, the client
should enter it from the Connect by ID option in the Connection menu
to establish a remote connection to the other computer.
Once connected, the client can do all sorts of things, much like with
Remote Utilities, such as work with multiple monitors, transfer files
silently, take full control or read-only access of the other PC, run a
remote task manager, launch files and programs remotely, capture sound,
create a demonstration with meeting participating, lock the other
person’s screen and keyboard, and text chat.

LiteManager’s Server and Viewer can also be ran in portable mode, but it
does require some manual file copies to get it to work. See more about
this at the Portable

quicker than the above method.

which you may not find in similar software.

2.1.4 NTFS permission, UAC
Many people doesn’t need to know about this, though it’s useful. The
UAC(User Access Control) is also a good feature to disable some auto-run
virus. The unreasonable permission config may cause some result, like
you can not delete some folder or file, etc. And in this section, I just
suggest most people, do not disable the UAC function except you know
what you are doing.
join.me is a remote access program from the producers of LogMeIn that
provides quick access to another computer over an Internet browser.
The person who needs remote assistance can download and run the join.me

application to be presented to a remote viewer. This is done by choosing
the start button.
A remote viewer just needs to enter the join.me personal code into their
own installation under the join section.
join.me supports full screen mode, conference calling, text chat,
multiple monitors, and up to 10 participants viewing a screen at once.

2.2 System management
System management is not difficult. Basically, you just need to use the
system, and don’t break it so far. Don’t forget, for most of people, the

Another free and portable remote access program is BeamYourScreen. This
program works like some of the others in this list, where the presenter
is given an ID number they must share with another user so they can
connect to the presenter’s screen.
BeamYourScreen hosts are called organizers, so the program
called BeamYourScreen for Organizers (Portable) is the preferred
method the host computer should use for accepting remote connections.
It’s quick and easy to start sharing your screen without having to
There’s also a version that can be installed called BeamYourScreen for
Just click the Start Session button to open your computer up for
connections. You’ll be given a session number you must share with
someone before they can connect to the host.
Clients can also install the portable or installable version of
BeamYourScreen, but there’s a dedicated program called BeamYourScreen
for Participants that’s a small executable file that can be launched
similar to the portable one for organizers.
Enter the host’s session number in the Session ID section of the
program to join the session.
Once connected, you can control the screen, share clipboard text and
files, and chat with text.
Something rather unique about BeamYourScreen is that you can share your
ID with multiple people so many participants can join in and look at the
presenter’s screen. There’s even anonline
viewer so clients can view the other
screen without having to run any software.

think it does not good, you have many third-party choice, e.g. Advanced
System Care or Tencent PC Manager in China.

recommended. But why I place this section to the first place, is that
many kind of system optimization is needless. If you think your PC which

optimization is dangerous, if you want to try, don’t forget to backup
