(Don't know if that is an appropriate title.)

I recall that windows used to have a connection whereby one computer could read the screen and interact with another computer. This was supposedly to aid in troubleshooting a freind or relative propblem.
Has this been discontinued in Windows 10?

Second question. More important.
How do you connect two computers so as to be able to read specific data?

I have two HP 23" Pavilion All-in-one computers. One for me and one for my wife. It would be very convenient for me to be able to access her computer in order to resolve the NUMEROUS problems she has.

If the features have been cancelled, so mode it be.

Thanks for reading

Yep....it was called "Remote Access" or something like that. I found windows version to be to convoluted/cumbersome to use.

I've always preferred TeamViewer and it's free.

The new "Quick Assist" in your programs menu under Windows Accessories is pretty robust and not quite as difficult to use as was formerly the case with remote access or remote control "Remote Desktop" using the old Microsoft Terminal Server Clent (mstsc.exe)
