Use Your Computer From Anywhere A Guide to Remote Controlling Your PC
Your home computer is the perfect machine. It's customized to your exact needs, runs all your must-have apps, and holds every important file you'd ever need to access. The catch: It's not exactly practical to lug a computer with you everywhere you go. That's where remote access comes in. Here are three dead-simple ways to control your home computer from anywhere—your laptop, phone, or even a friend's computer as though you were sitting directly in front of it.
We've talked about remote access countless times before, but if you're just starting out with the subject, it can be pretty overwhelming. You have a ton of different programs to choose from, some of which only work on certain platforms, and each of which has their own strengths depending on what you're trying to accomplish. Here, we'll share our favorite remote access methods for different situations, as well as alternatives you can try if our favorite doesn't work for you.
We've listed the cross platform options below for everyone, but there are also Windows-only and Mac-only programs for people that use the same OS on all their machines. Click your preference below to add its instructions to the guide.

Best Mobile Hotspots In 2021
If you're about to resume traveling, make sure you have one of the best mobile hotspots. Even if you've got a smartphone and a plan that includes hotspot data, having a dedicated device that keeps you connected can be essential to staying productive on the go.
It's true that a phone can be perfectly adequate as a hotspot in a pinch. But for anyone regularly out and about, a standalone hotspot makes more sense. Your phone is often busy doing other things — making phone calls, sending and receiving email, catching up on Slack, Twitter, or the latest news — which also require access to a cellular network. If you don't want the potential disruption or bandwidth limitations of your phone's hotspot, a standalone hotspot can provide additional connectivity.
What's more, that smartphone you're carrying around is likely your personal device. If so, you're not going to want to burn up your cellular data allocation for anything other than personal use. That's why a mobile hotspot is a very important tool for mobile workers and frequent business travelers.
Whether you're stuck someplace with dodgy Wi-Fi or you're finally on the go after spending much of the last year indoors, the best mobile hotspots can keep you connected. And with 5G networks expanding, 5G hotspots are now more widely available with the promise of faster download speeds.
Here's a closer look at the best options for a mobile hotspot.
What are the best mobile hotspots?
Mobile hotspots are generally offered through wireless carriers, and unless you’re willing to create an account with a new wireless provider, it’s usually best to add a line of data for a hotspot with your current carrier. Our recommendations, like the ones above, note which hotspot works with which wireless carrier.
To that end, Inseego's Jetpack 8800L is the best hotspot if you want to connect to Verizon’s network. Based on online research and reviews, this mobile hotspot performs well and is easy to tote around. The best hotspot for AT&T customers is the Nighthawk LTE mobile hotspot.
If you live in an area covered by a carrier's 5G network, we'd recommend T-Mobile's 5G MiFi M2000, built by Inseego, given T-Mobile's early lead in 5G. Verizon and AT&T have their own 5G hotspots — the Inseego MiFi M2100 5G UW and the Netgear Nighthawk 5G Mobile Hotspot Pro, respectively.
A hotspot can also come in handy if you do a lot of traveling to other countries and want a seamless way to connect to local cellular networks. We recommend the Skyroam Solis Lite, which provides coverage when you're traveling for a competitive daily rental rate if you'd prefer not to buy a hotspot.
