Switching Between Control and Observe Modes

Each control session can be switched to a single-client observe session, in which the
controlled computer no longer takes mouse and keyboard input from the
administrator computer. This allows you to easily give control over to a user at the
client computer keyboard, or place the screen under observation without accidentally
affecting the client computer.

See “Observing a Single Computer” on page 98 for more information on Apple Remote
Desktop observe mode.

To switch between control and observe modes:


Control a client computer.


Click the Control/Observe toggle button in the control window toolbar.
