Chrome Remote Desktop

This blog post gives you a step by step guide to setting up Chrome Remote Desktop on your computer.

  1. The first thing you need is the Google Chrome web browser, without it we won't be able to remote connect to your machine. If you already use and/or have Google Chrome installed please proceed to step 2.

    If you are not sure if you do or don't have Google Chrome installed on your computer try this:
    Windows 10: Click your start button (bottom left) and type Chrome
    Mac: Click your launchpad and type Chrome

    If Google Chrome is installed you will see this icon
    Google Chrome icon
  2. Visit Chrome Remote Desktop
    If you are asked to login please do with your Google username and password.
    If you DO NOT have a Google account already you can create one here.
  3. Once you are signed in you will see a screen like the image below, click Remote Support and then click the download icon to install the remote desktop extension to Google Chrome

  4. You will then be asked to Add the extension to Chrome, click Add to Chrome (as shown in the image below):
  5. Chrome will then ask you to confirm you want to add the extension, click Add extension (as shown in the image below):
  6. You now be asked to give your computer a name. This can be anything you like BUT make it memorable, we would use something like "Media City Way Computer". Once you have entered a name for your computer click next

  7. You will now be asked for a memorable PIN, once you have entered your pin and confirmed the same pin number click Start

  8. If you get any warnings asking "if you would like to allow this app to make changes to your computer" click YES.
  9. Chrome Remote Desktop will now show you the computer/device that you have just added

  10. Click Remote Support, this is located at the top middle of the screen
  11. You will now see a box saying Get Support, click on the button that says Generate Code

  12. Give this code (usually 12 digits long) to Media City Way and we'll connect to your machine.
