Went to their website. They seem pretty cool and I like how it is not to expensive if you want to purchase it.

Just doing some final checks of Teamviewer before leaving and discovered the graphics quality was not anything like what I remembered with Remote Desktop. I did a double check using RDT and it most definitely produces a clearer and truer image of the original desktop.

By default, TV tries to improve performance by sending as little desktop data across from host to client. This includes setting backgrounds to black, reverting to lower resolution and turning off Aero, etc.

But if your connection speed from client to host is no problem you can change all of that through settings, to produce a much improved appearance on the client.

Extras -> Options -> Remote control -> quality, set to "optimize quality" instead of default "automatic quality selection"

Extras -> Options -> Meeting -> quality, again set to "optimize quality" instead of default "automatic quality selection"

You can also uncheck "remove remote wallpaper" and/or "remove own wallpaper" if you want, but I leave them checked as it greatly improves response time with a solid black background instead of a graphic.


Try those. Did it give you what you want in terms of host desktop appearance on the client?

That's good to know. Thank you.

I did change the setting to optimize quality and I saw no difference in the image quality. I would also observe that RDP just looks and feels more like the remote desktop and response is quicker.
