Sharing

The Microsoft Easy Assist client has a streamlined design that puts the focus on what you are troubleshooting. There are many ways you can share and request control of a customer’s desktop. This section talks about requesting sharing, requesting control, and sharing your desktop or program.

During sessions, a support person can request desktop sharing and then take control of a participant’s desktop, or they can share their own desktop.
