How do you optimize your use of AnyDesk?
The best way to optimize the use of AnyDesk as remote access software is by following these five shortcuts. Here are some of the AnyDesk features that you may not have known about until now.
In most cases, it is impossible to restart a remote desktop in the traditional way. In fact, many remote sessions come to an end because of this obstacle.
Enabling unattended access
Some users reported that creating sessions through unattended access resolved their keyboard issues. Unattended access allows users to connect to a remote client without sending a session request to the client. This feature is best suited for users who work partially remotely and want to avoid taking their work computer with them wherever they go. They can easily access the remote computer regardless of whether it is turned on or in sleep mode.
To enable unattended access in AnyDesk, follow the steps below:
Open AnyDesk and click the three horizontal lines in the upper right corner of the screen.
From the options, select «Settings».
Click on «Security» and go to the «Permissions Profile» section.
Expand the dropdown menu and select «Unattended Access».
Click the «Set Password…» button and enter and re-enter the password.
Click «Apply» to complete the process.
Other common AnyDesk issues
Users also frequently report AnyDesk issues related to audio, mouse, and keyboard. First of all, these errors can be caused by incorrect software installation – try reinstalling AnyDesk. The reason may also be that the Windows PC does not start properly and you just need to restart your system. If that doesn’t work, go to the following steps:
Make sure «Stream audio output from this desktop» is enabled in your audio settings. Also, go to the «Security» > «Unattended Access» tab and «Remote User Permissions» sections and allow other users to listen to your computer’s sound output.
Right click Android
Once you have successfully connected to the remote machine. To right-click your mouse, use your mobile device screen as a trackpad and hold the mouse down.
This is done in exactly the same way as with Android. Use your mobile device’s screen as a touchpad and hold to right-click the remote.
