note: this step should be performed in both computer , the computer you want to access remotely and the master computer, for step number 5 its better to chose same password to make it easier for you to remember this password .



  1. Download it from TeamViewer Web site.
  2. Double click over the installation icon , and choose install, in case you don't want to install it in your computer and you want just to run it for this time you can chose run.
  3. Choose “Personal/non-commercial use”.
  4. Accept the terms.
  5. Now, here choose start automatically with windows, and type a password that you can remember easily.
  6. Choose full access.
  7. After the installation progress finished, you will see this window.
  8. There are some options we need to customize , first go to Extras> Generals and chose a name for the computer , this name will be used when accessing the computer remotely, and don't forget to chose “start TeamViewer with windows”.
  9. now go to Security tab. and change Windows logon to “Allowed for all users”, this will let you access your computer even before actually starting the windows, so you can enter a user name and password in windows logon screen .
  10. OK that's it, now go back to the main screen, at this point you should be finish installing TeamViewer in both computer you want to establish connection between, and you have to make sure that TeamViewer is running on both of them ,now back to the main screen and type the name of the computer you want to access (you can also use ID provided in the same window, or use IP address (it should be something like 192.168.1.*)), and click “Connect to partner”, so after that you will prompt for the password, enter the password you chose previously for that computer .
