AnyDesk Review

Sven Sorensen
An extensive free remote desktop tool with clipboard support supporting file transfers and remote screenshots
A review of AnyDesk by Sven Sørensen

AnyDesk is a free remote desktop tool which allows you to be controlled or to control some else's computer desktop.

It all works over the wires of the Internet and is a perfect tool for providing assistance to others or performing maintenance remotely. When you first run AnyDesk, you're provided with an address which you should supply to whoever you're sharing a desktop with and vice-versa.

AnyDesk uses DeskRT codecs, meaning there is little lag times keeping AnyDesk snappy and fluid. You can use it to control the keyboard, mouse and to playback audio.

The application is current in beta meaning that all of its features are free but we reckon there will be some restrictions with the free version once it exits the beta stage.

In conclusion: The screen sharing and remote desktop control tool AnyDesk offers excellent speed, good image quality and several cool features you should keep an eye on.

AnyDesk features and highlights:
  • Works with Windows operating systems
  • Clipboard contents can be synced
  • Portable mode by default
  • Various settings are easily accessible from the menu bar
  • Alter the connection to create the best possible video quality
  • Show remote cursor
  • Transmit sound
  • Disabling control for view-only
  • Block the other user's input
