Chrome Remote Desktop: How to use Remote Access on PC without installing anything | Utilities

Chrome Remote Desktop has changed and now only requires an extension to work on Windows and Mac and allow you to access the browser remotely. Starting with Chrome version 75, you no longer need to download an additional program to use the remote access tool. Google's solution allows you to connect two computers through the browser: you can access someone else's machine or allow someone you trust to control your PC without being physically present. The user can also register multiple personal devices to open them on other devices as possible, for example viewing the desktop on the mobile screen. See in the tutorial how to use the service without installing apps.
