Fix Computers Remotely With CrossLoop

Have you ever had a friend or relative that has a computer problem and wants to to fix it? Well instead of you having to travel to their house you can just fix the problem from your house with a program called CrossLoop. What this program does is it gives you remote access to their computer so you can control their computer from your own home.

To use CrossLoop is very simple all you will need to do is download and install the program from here: http://www.crossloop.com/ipage.htm?id=predownload. Also you will need to sign up for an account which is also free so no worries there.

When you open CrossLoop you will see a screen that looks similar to the image below. On this screen you will just need to login so that you will be at the main CrossLoop window.

Once you have logged in you will now need to make sure that whoever has the computer that you would like to connect to has CrossLoop setup. Now to connect to them you will need them to click on the Share tab and then give you the code. Once you have the code they can they click Connect and so can you after you have entered their code into your CrossLoop. When you get connected to them they will get a notification asking if they would like to accept the connection.
