Even if you conscientiously save your data to the cloud, there always comes a time when you’re away from your home or office and need to edit a file that’s stuck on that computer. Or you’ll be sitting in a hotel room and have to run a program on your home PC. Maybe you’re out and about and want to run a desktop app on your phone. That’s where remote desktop tools come in. Once configured, these programs allow you to securely connect to a computer from another device. You’ll be able to fully control your computer from any location, and it’ll almost be like actually sitting down to the real machine from afar.
