Can You Remote Desktop From PC to Mac?

There are a couple of ways for you to access a Mac device using remote desktop technology. Here they are:

1. Back to My Mac - The first option we have on our list is the Back to My Mac tool. To set up and enable Back to My Mac, follow the steps below:

  • Open System Preferences and select iCloud.

  • Turn on Back to My Mac.

  • Go to System Preferences. Then, head on to Sharing. See if the Screen Sharing checkbox is ticked.

Once enabled, you can now use it to access another Mac device remotely. To achieve this, follow the steps below:

  • Head on to System Preferences. Then, go to iCloud.

  • Open the Finder window then look for the Shared menu.

  • Select the Mac device you want to connect to.

  • Click Share Screen.

2. iCloud - The next option on our list is iCloud. This Mac feature will help you access any files stored in your Mac device remotely. Follow the steps below to use iCloud successfully:

  • Head to System Preferences.

  • Click iCloud

  • Select Options beside iCloud Drive. Here, you’ll see all the files you can store in your iCloud drive.

  • Check the box beside Desktop & Documents Folder.

  • Some of your files will be stored in your Mac when the Optimise Mac Storage checkbox is ticked. However, once you run out of space, some of your files will automatically be stored in your iCloud.

  • Make sure that all of the files you’re working on are either stored in your Desktop, Apple Apps, or Documents folder.

3. Mac Screen Sharing - With Mac Screen Sharing, you can access files and run apps on a Mac device you’re trying to remote to. Usually, Mac Screen Sharing is used when a user needs to provide technical support to someone who resides in a different geographical location. To set up Mac Screen Sharing, follow these steps below:

  • Open the Start window.

  • Enter the Apple ID of the Mac device you want to remote to.

  • The remote Mac device user will then receive your permission to access.

  • The Mac device user needs to accept your access request.

  • The remote device user can either allow you to view the screen only or control your screen remotely.
