How to Set Up and Use Chrome Remote Desktop Control for Seamless Access

In today’s fast-paced world, having seamless access to our devices from anywhere is becoming increasingly important. Whether you need to access files on your home computer while at the office or provide remote technical support to a friend or family member, having a reliable remote desktop control solution is essential. One such solution that has gained popularity is Chrome Remote Desktop Control. In this article, we will guide you through the process of setting up and using Chrome Remote Desktop Control for seamless access.

Getting Started with Chrome Remote Desktop Control

Setting up Chrome Remote Desktop Control is a straightforward process that can be completed in just a few simple steps. First, ensure that you have Google Chrome installed on both the device you want to remotely access (the host) and the device from which you want to control it (the client). Once installed, open Google Chrome on both devices.

Next, go to the Chrome Web Store and search for “Chrome Remote Desktop.” Click on the “Add to Chrome” button next to the official extension developed by Google. The extension will then be added to your browser, and an icon will appear in your browser toolbar.

Enabling Remote Access

After installing the extension, click on its icon in the browser toolbar of your host device. A pop-up window will appear with two options: “Remote Assistance” and “My Computers.” Choose “My Computers” if you want full remote access control over your host device.

To enable remote access, click on the “Get Started” button under the “My Computers” section. You will be prompted to sign in with your Google Account if you haven’t already done so. Once signed in, click on the “Enable remote connections” button.

Setting Up Access PIN

To ensure secure remote access, it is recommended to set up an access PIN. This PIN will be required whenever you want to establish a remote connection with your host device. Click on the “Set PIN” button and enter a strong PIN of your choice. Make sure to remember this PIN or note it down in a secure place.

Accessing Your Host Device Remotely

Now that you have set up Chrome Remote Desktop Control on your host device, it’s time to access it remotely from your client device. On your client device, open Google Chrome and click on the Chrome Remote Desktop icon in the browser toolbar.

Under the “Remote Assistance” section, you will see a list of available host devices that you have set up for remote access. Click on the desired host device, and if prompted, enter the access PIN you set up earlier. Once authenticated, you will gain full control over your host device right from your client device.


Chrome Remote Desktop Control is an excellent solution for seamless access to your devices from anywhere. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily set up and use Chrome Remote Desktop Control for convenient remote access to your files, applications, and more.
