Quick Assist, the trick to manage a friend’s PC from a distance

by Sai kiran SAugust 12, 2017
This feature allows you to control someone's computer or let them control yours in the event of a problem.

At the present time, remotely connecting to another computer from ours is possible thanks to programs that allow sharing the screen or remote desktop tools such as TeamViewer. But thanks to Windows 10 we have it much easier because this operating system has the native remote function implemented and we can use it from the Anniversary Update version under the name of Quick Assist or Quick Assistance.

Manage a friend’s PC from a distance

What is Quick Assist? Because Microsoft Quick Assistance is a Windows 10 application that allows two people to share a computer over a remote connection so that one person can help solve problems on the other’s computer. Anyone who needs help should request assistance from anyone who is going to help, be it a friend or Microsoft Technical Support itself. Both initiate Quick Assistance and the person who helps sends a security code to those who need help. The person in need of help writes the code and gives permission to the person who helps so that the person can take control of that person’s equipment and provide assistance through the remote connection.

The process can work both in one direction and another, and we can both help a friend gain control of their PC and let them help us and take control of our system by following these steps and depending on your needs:

Allow them to control your PC

Step 1

Select the Start button > Windows Accessories> Quick Assistance.

Step 2

Select Get Support, and then follow the instructions in Quick Assistance.

Step 3

If User Account Control appears, select Yes to continue.

Step 4

Wait for the connection to be established.
