Windows Quick Assist
Are you familiar with Windows Quick Assist? Windows already had Remote Assistance which can typically require special permissions or setup to work. Windows Quick Assist is more like TeamViewer or GoToAssist and very ease to use.
Quick Assist is a Windows 10 feature that lets you give assistance to other users or receive assistance from other users. No special permissions or setup required other than the person giving assistance needs a Windows account. The person receiving assistance is not required to authenticate.
To start Quick Assistance press the CTRL+WINDOWS+Q keys on your keyboard.
From here, a dialog is displayed giving you a choice to GET or to GIVE assistance.
- If you intend to GIVE assistance, you’ll be given another window with a code to give to the person you want to help.
- If you’re going to GET assistance, enter the code given to you and share your screen.
That’s pretty much it. The rest if pretty self explanatory.
