Interacting with Users



Select a computer in the Remote Desktop window.


Choose Interact > Observe.

If the observed computer’s screen is larger than the observe window, the screen will
scroll as the pointer approaches the edge of the window.


To customize the single-client observe window and session, see “Control Window
Options” on page 87. The observe window’s options are the same as those of the
control window.
