Do Macs have Remote Desktop?

Mac devices have the ability to connect to other devices using remote desktop technology. Here are some of the remote desktop solutions on Mac:

Windows Remote Desktop Connection - On the device you wish to remotely connect to:

  • Open the System Preferences

  • Click  Sharing in the Internet and Wireless group

  • Tick the Screen Sharing box on the left

  • Select the Computer Settings button on the right

  • Click on the “VNC viewers may control screen with password”

  • Set a password to use for screen sharing

  • Click OK

  • In order to make sure it’s set to “Allow access for: Only these users,” select the plus button at the bottom of the page

  • Choose your name from the list

  • Click the Select button

  • If you wish to share files as well, enable File Sharing by putting a check mark on it

Mac Screen Sharing

The next Mac remote access solution in our list is through Mac Screen Sharing. This Mac feature allows you to access and control another Mac device remotely. With the help of Mac Screen Sharing, you can access files, use apps, and even fix troubleshoot issues on a remote Mac device.

One of the aims of Mac Screen Sharing is to allow you to provide technical support to clients or even loved ones who live in a different city. With this, you no longer need to be where the problem is just so you fix it. To set up Mac Screen Sharing, follow these steps accordingly:

  • Open the Screen Sharing app.

  • Enter the Apple ID of the remote Mac device in the box next to Connect to.

  • A message will appear saying your local device is waiting for the remote computer’s response.

  • The remote device, on the other hand, has the option to either allow you to control the screen entirely or to just observe it.

  • Once your request is granted, you can connect to and control the remote Mac device.
