Installing the application on your computer:

  • You will have to download the TeamViewer app from their official site. Just click on this link.
  • Once you open the TeamViewer site using that link, you should look for the green Download for free button. By clicking on that button, the download process is going to start right away, and it is going to be finished in just a few seconds because the TeamViewer file is not big.
  • In order to install the file, you must first click on it. If you are using the Google Chrome browser, the downloaded file will appear at the bottom of your screen, just click on it.
  • You will be running the setup wizard now. The first thing that you need to do is to select the Installation to access this computer remotely, just check that box by clicking on it.
  • Next, under the How do you want to use the TeamViewer section in the installation window you are able to choose whichever option you want to choose: If you want to use TeamViewer individually, for personal reasons, select the Personal use. And, if you are a part of some company, you must click on the Company use. Have in mind that TeamViewer is free if you are using it for non-commercial purposes. In other words, the software is free if you want to use it for personal reasons. But, if you want to use it for some commercial use, you will be obligated to pay for a monthly fee.
  • After you have chosen between those two options, just click on the Finish button so that the installation could start. Of course, you could set up some advanced settings of the software before you click on the Finish button that is up to you.
  • And now, all that is left to do is to wait until the installing process has been finished. We believe that this process will not take much of your time.
