I tested and i have installed on u9h - microsoft remote desktop.
If you need the opposite - u9h to PC this tool for android works very well and even better with physical mouse and physical keyboard.

Hi in the current climate want to resurrect this

Parents have U1 with Marshmallow installed and I want to remote into it but due to Lockdown here cannot visit them

So take it teamviewer the best and easiest option as they are not tech minded so getting them to download something in playstore will be a job in itself

i understand your situation with parents and IT !!

theres a reasonable chance they already have teamviwer on the U1

afaik teamviewer is the best ( and only ?) option to be done easily.

if not installed im afraid you will have to guide them through playstore route...way i find best is to actually do it yourself at the same time

Ok installed teamviewer on PC and parents installed it on their U1. Managed to access it and get access to remote control but want to be able to see desktop but could not see this. So I could access desktop and be able to use PC and mouse controls to install apps etc.

Messed around but could not find a way. Got remote access and trf file but want to be able to view and control it remotely and install, update remove apps. Also show them how to do this

Any ideas?

Hi. There is another option called Anydesk. You can download it from the playstore and install it on a PC also.

Do you use Anydesk?
Will it let you have full control of remote android box?
Is the personal use version free forever, or is it a free trial period?
If not free how much does it cost per month?

Which Teamviewer App did you/your parents install on their U1?
Did you register/get an account for Teamviewer on your PC? (email and password)

We believe you should be able to test software before signing up. That’s why we offer a free trial for you to explore AnyDesk and its many features - and we won’t ask for any personal information either. If you’re a private user, you can keep using AnyDesk for free. ;)

Thanks for response.

Will Anydesk allow me to completely control my sisters android box from my PC?
