The tool has simple and easy user interface. It’s a sequence of system windows, when starting the application, session, entering host’s and client’s ID. As soon as client grants connection for the host, you’ll get the client's remote desktop available for control. It’s easy, and running program lightly impacts your computer’s performance.
Ammyy Admin is easy to manage, and even if you are a complete newbie in the whole remote access thing, you’ll grasp key features quickly. There are two ways of working with Ammyy Admin - set up an unattended access or launch the program.
To do the first, you need to run Ammyy Admin as a system service through Ammyy > Service > Install. This way you can always connect to Ammyy Admin. Or you can just launch the program. Installation is not necessary. The sessions start quickly, and the program file is small. You can transfer, remove, add, copy files without interrupting the host. There is an option to start file manager or voice chat without viewing the host’s screen.
You use an ID number, received when the program is launched for the first time, to connect the host and client PC. The client enters host’s ID in the Client ID/IP text field in the Create Session section. Once the connection is made, Ammyy Admin can transfer files or start a voice chat. Unfortunately, the program doesn’t support text chat, which is a bummer in case the PC doesn’t have a built-in microphone.
