How to Control another computer Remote?
One of the first things any knowledgeable user would do if they suspect there is something slowing their computer down or a suspected malicious program might be running in the background, is press Ctrl+Shift+Escape to open the Windows Task Manager. From there you can view what’s running and detect if any programs are using too much CPU time or memory, or look suspect and shouldn’t be there. Although the Windows Task Manager is a valuable tool, there are better alternative Task management tools out there that you can use to replace it with.
? Process Explorer, Process Hacker or System Explorer etc cannot show you what’s running on another computer so ordinarily if there is something that needs checking, you would have to go to that computer physically and view or kill any processes.
Thankfully there are ways to access other computers in your local network remotely, and you can also view and manipulate processes on another computer without leaving your own. Here we show you 5 ways to view and manage another computer’s tasks remotely. 1. Remote Process Explorer
