Access to Remote Computer's logon password.

I use Teamviewer to access a remote computer with a logon password.  In the process of performing various tasks on this remote computer, I often have to Restart it.  Is there a way using Teamviewer that will give me access to the remote computer after the Restart is complete, to enter the logon password (which I know) and continue with my work?  As it is now, I telephone the remote computer's owner and ask her manually enter the logon password from her end before I can re-establish access to the remote computer.

    Hello @drbajb,

    Thank you for your post.

    TeamViewer has a 'Remote Reboot' feature that can be found in the Action menu drop-down of the Remote Control toolbar at the top of the connection:

    After confirmation, another pop-up will appear, asking if you want to reconnect when the device comes back online:

    After the reboot, when the device comes back online, a final pop-up will appear asking if you would like to reconnect to the device:

    Once connected, you should be able to enter the login credentials and continue working!

    I hope this helps!
