Once Phil’s lost data has been restored, Lucy calls threatening to smash the printer with a baseball bat. At the same time someone somewhere is downloading a malicious file, putting the whole IT security at risk without knowing. One thing is certain, though: Admins are underappreciated lifesavers who are facing a Sisyphean challenge when it comes to ensuring a stable IT environment for everyone else to work in – the backbone of the company so to say. <a href="">Read more</a></b></br> <br /> </ul><br /><br /> Thu, 12 Feb 2015 13:11:36 +0100 466 Custom TeamViewer Modules with Your Branding If you’re a Managed Service Provider who is delivering IT support remotely to your customers, TeamViewer 10 has a great new feature for you – greater customization of TeamViewer modules. <a href="">Read more</a></b></br> <br /> </ul><br /><br /> Thu, 05 Feb 2015 14:54:49 +0100 464 Update released: TeamViewer 10.0.38475 for Windows We've released an update (10.0.38475) for <a href=" ">TeamViewer on Windows</a> with new features, minor bug fixes and improvements.</br></br> Changelog: <ul><li>NEW: ITbrain Anti-Malware is now integrated</li> <li>The conference call configuration for scheduled meetings is saved and used when inviting via mail</li> <li>ID and password font color adapts to the chosen background in custom modules</li> <li>Fixed sorting by date in file transfer</li> <li>Fixed searching for IDs in your list of computers</li> <li>Fixed sound when converting a recorded meeting to AVI video format</li> <li>Fix for remote controlling Windows 10 Technical Preview</li> <li>Fixed several issues with right-to-left translations </li> <li>Other minor improvements and fixes</li> </ul> Download and try the update now!</br></br> We wish you continued success with TeamViewer!<br/><br/> Tue, 03 Feb 2015 12:47:05 +0100 463 Have a Super Day - With TeamViewer!

The reasons and advantages for running Linux are as varied as the multitude of different Linux distributions. Linux doesn’t just appear on the occasional server hidden somewhere in a basement or on a research scientist’s workstation. Linux may have the reputation as the operating system of choice for tech geeks who take pride in being free from the constraints of Redmond- and Cupertino-based software, but today you’re nearly as likely to find it on some grandmother’s or banker’s computer (possibly installed by that tech geek) as you are anywhere else. The robustness, flexibility, and security of the operating system make it an attractive alternative for many. Simply put, there are numerous reasons why you might need TeamViewer on Linux – enough reasons for us to make it available to you. <a href="">Read more</a></b></br> <br /> </ul><br /><br /> Thu, 22 Jan 2015 11:28:49 +0100 456 Profile Pictures – New in TeamViewer 10 There are numerous ways to shape your customers’ experience.

You might find yourself asking the question, “Why do I need a door lock? Everyone taking part in my meeting is here because I sent them an invitation. They’re supposed to be here, and with TeamViewer, I don’t have to worry about just anyone showing up. All true; however, there are some uses for the door lock that might not be so obvious. <a href="">Read more</a></b></br> <br /> </ul><br /><br /> Fri, 12 Dec 2014 14:56:15 +0100 450 Online Meetings – The Easy Way Do you have the feeling that your work weeks are filled with meetings?

Sometimes though, the person receiving the support would prefer that you only be able to observe their screen, rather than have complete remote control.

Maybe even one the best. As a supporter his Kung foo is powerful. Inside the Windows registry, it’s like he’s in the Matrix. Where others just see random numbers or unintelligible words, it’s as if he can see the truth of what’s really going on behind the scenes. When customers contact his IT services company with computer problems, they’re in good hands, no matter what the problem. He works quickly and efficiently, but he takes his time when necessary to answer questions or offer explanations. He knows IT inside and out. It’s his realm. Most of all though, he just really enjoys helping people. <a href="">Read more</a></b></br> <br /> </ul><br /><br /> Fri, 05 Dec 2014 11:06:35 +0100 442 Adapting to the Market’s Needs TeamViewer 10 marks the tenth anniversary of one of the world’s most popular providers of remote control and online meeting software.

Having all that extra real estate certainly makes a lot of tasks much easier, or at least more enjoyable. Also, more and more video productions are being shot in 4K, making UHD a critical tool. While these monitors are not just more useful for video editing, it provides a nice example. With regard to video editing, sometimes you need to leave a hard drive with media assets connected to another system. If that system is connected to a UHD monitor, remote controlling it poses a challenge.<br /> <br>Trying to share a UHD monitor stream across the Internet at or near real-time requires some serious compression, good use of bandwidth, and some other technical masteries that few have yet to achieve. </ul><br /><br /> We wish you best continued success with TeamViewer and welcome your feedback! Tue, 25 Nov 2014 14:02:44 +0100 438 How to Get Your Not So Tech-Savvy Parents to Install TeamViewer We have published a new blog article on the <a href="">TeamViewer Blog</a></b> in the category <a href="">Remote Support<br /><br /> <br><li><a href="">How to Get Your Not So Tech-Savvy Parents to Install TeamViewer</a></b></br> <br>I moved out of my parents’ house when I was 20 years old to attend university. Up until then, my dad frequently used my desktop PC for such exciting activities as buying stamps off eBay and looking at pictures of airplanes. I selfishly took my PC with me when I left, so my dad went and got a laptop. Not only did it change his life (he was able to buy stamps while sitting in his armchair), it also changed mine. As the firstborn, I had, and still have, the honor of being my dad’s personal tech-expert. So whenever he calls me asking for support, I feel obligated to help him.<br /> <br>It is not always easy finding a solution when his description of the problem is vague at best (“It’s not working… no, I didn’t do anything!”) and you are not there to personally have a look. I have to admit that I wasn’t always aware of software solutions for remotely supporting friends and family. If only I had known about that earlier… Anyway, TeamViewer fixes the problem of not being there. Install it once, access your parents’ PCs whenever you need to, and give them remote support. But what if you cannot be there to get TeamViewer up and running?<br /> <br>That’s why I came up with this guide that will save you time and nerves. Follow these step-by-step instructions to gain access to your parents’ PCs in no time. </ul><br /><br /> We wish you best continued success with TeamViewer and welcome your feedback!

The technology has existed as a practical application for decades, and the idea goes back even further. No sooner had the telephone been invented, and people were already talking about how to possibly transmit a live image along with the audio. </ul><br /><br /> We wish you best continued success with TeamViewer and welcome your feedback!
