This article applies to all TeamViewer users in a connection from Windows to Windows devices. For the Mac TeamViewer Remote Control Toolbar, please click here.
During a TeamViewer remote control session, the TeamViewer Remote Session Toolbar appears on the top of the screen of your local computer.
This article explains all available features of the toolbar in a Windows to Windows connection.
Note: The toolbar might look differently in connections between other operating systems like e.g. Mac to Windows and has fewer options.
This is the main menu of the TeamViewer toolbar:
The following chapters describe the different features of the toolbar, starting from the left and ending on the right side of the toolbar.
With this button, you can close the remote session. If a lock symbol is visible, it means that the Windows session of the remote device will be locked after closing the TeamViewer session.
Note: You can change this function in the TeamViewer settings of your local computer under Extras → Options → Advanced → Advanced settings for connections to other computers --> Lock remote computer --> Choose between Always, Never, Automatic.
We recommend to always use the cross button within the TeamViewer toolbar to close a TeamViewer session . We do not recommend to use the Windows closing X-button in the upper right corner of the remote session window.
The home button leads you to the General information dashboard:
In this dashboard, you can find a detailed overview of useful information about your device such as:
The Actions button offers you different actions within the remote control session:
The View button offers you different options to optimize and individulize the view your remote control session:
The Communicate button offers you different options to communicate with the connection partner during your remote control session:
The Files & Extras button offers you additional options regarding files, network, printing within your remote control session:
The Comment button offers you to leave notes during your remote control session and opens a comment window.
This is e.g. useful for supporters who want to remember what they have done during the remote session e.g. for invoicing.
You can easily retrieve the comments you have left during the remote control session in your Management Console in your Connection reports under the column Notes.
