Whether you're an experienced digital nomad or a newcomer to the world of remote work, gaining mastery over the features of your remote access tool is a game-changer. This blog post delves into the rich feature set of Splashtop, offering practical tips and tricks to help you supercharge your productivity.

Splashtop, a leading remote desktop tool, offers many features to enhance your remote working experience and boost productivity. Using Splashtop’s top features effectively can be a game-changer for your remote work productivity.

10 Tips to Boost Your Productivity with Splashtop Remote Access

#1 – Harness the power of multiple monitors

A multi-monitor setup can be a significant productivity booster, offering the space to juggle multiple tasks or keep an eye on various data streams.

Splashtop shines in its support for multiple monitors. With Splashtop, you view the multiple screens of your remote computer simultaneously on your local multi-monitor display. If your local setup only has one screen, you can conveniently switch between the multiple remote screens.

This feature allows you to replicate your in-office multi-monitor setup wherever you are, ensuring you don't miss a beat when working remotely.

#2 – Optimize your settings for peak performance

Your remote connection can heavily influence the quality of your remote working experience. Splashtop offers options to tailor your experience and give you the best remote connection performance.

You can adjust settings like the color quality or balance speed against quality to optimize Splashtop's performance. This customization can help provide a smoother experience when bandwidth is limited, ensuring your remote work isn't hampered by connectivity issues.

Check out our list of common factors that can affect remote access performance and tips on how to optimize your connection quality.

#3 – Utilize seamless file transfers

When working remotely, you may need to move files back and forth between your local and remote computers. Splashtop makes this easy with its drag-and-drop file transfer feature. It eliminates the need for external storage devices or uploading and downloading files through cloud storage, saving you valuable time and making file sharing an absolute breeze.

#4 – Stay connected from anywhere by using any device

One of the key benefits of Splashtop is the ability to access your remote computer from any device - from your smartphone to your personal computer. By installing the Splashtop app on your devices, you can carry your office in your pocket. This flexibility lets you respond to urgent requests, check in on important tasks, or continue your work, irrespective of your location or the time.

#5 – Enhance communication with the chat feature

When providing remote support or working collaboratively, effective communication is crucial. Splashtop's built-in chat feature allows you to send and receive messages during a remote session, providing a convenient channel for clarifying doubts, discussing solutions, or just guiding the remote user. This interactive feature can reduce misunderstandings and enhance the overall efficiency of your remote sessions.

#6 – Wake your computer with the Wake-on-LAN feature

In the world of remote work, accessibility is king. Splashtop's Wake-On-LAN feature allows you to power on your remote machine even when you're miles away. Whether you've forgotten to leave your office computer on over the weekend or your home PC has gone to sleep, this feature ensures your work is always just a few clicks away.

#7 – Speed up your navigation with keyboard shortcuts

Every second counts in the fast-paced professional world. Keyboard shortcuts can be a significant time-saver, aiding faster navigation and operation. Splashtop supports a variety of keyboard shortcuts that can help you operate the remote computer quickly, boosting your efficiency and shaving precious seconds off your tasks.

#8 – Print documents remotely

Imagine needing to print a document that's on your office computer while you're at home. With Splashtop, you can print it directly using your local printer without transferring the document to your home computer. Features like these make remote work with Splashtop as good as being there.

#9 – Leverage session recording for training & auditing

Session recording is a valuable feature for many, particularly IT support teams. Splashtop's session recording feature lets you record your remote access sessions and play them back whenever you need. Whether it's for training, auditing, or reviewing work processes, these recordings can serve as a powerful tool for reflection and learning, boosting efficiency and efficacy.

#10 – Secure your remote work experience with robust security features

In a time where cyber threats are a pressing concern, securing your remote work is paramount.
