How to manage Windows remotely with Syspectr: free remote PC management and monitoring software
Open up the Syspectr website and submit your email. Wait a couple of days and you should get an invite. Register you account and from the left toolbar, once that you’ve logged in, select Computer.
You can see that I’ve already added 1 computer. Clicking on the Plus square downloads the client that you have to install on the remote computer that you want to monitor. You just need to install it, it runs automatically in the background as a silent process.
On the image above you can see an example of the remote management control panel. Clicking on any of those squares open up hard disk management, USB storage management or in our case the command prompt, where you can remotely run commands. You can even turn off and restart your PC by clicking on the turn off or restart buttons from the top right corner of the interface.
It’s very easy to setup Syspectr. You practically don’t need any kind of experience other than online account registration and a simple wizard install (for the desktop client). Desktop client works in the background, you won’t even know its there. Try it and see how it goes. Free download.
