Windows Remote Assistance (Part 2)

In Part 2 of this three part series, I will show you how to shout out for remote assistance by selecting “Use e-mail to send an invitation”.  As with “Save this invitation as a file”, help is just a few clicks away.  Click on the Start button and type Windows Remote Assistance in the search box.  You will be presented with two options…

  • Invite someone you trust to help you
  • Help someone who has invited you

Select “Invite someone you trust to help you ” and you will have three more options to choose from…

  • Save this invitation as a file
  • Use e-mail to send an invitation
  • Use Easy Connect

Select “Use e-mail to send an invitation” and an e-mail will be drafted that reads as follows….


I need help with my computer. Would you please use Windows Remote Assistance
to connect to my computer so you can help me? After you connect, you can
view my screen and we can chat online.

To accept this invitation, double-click the file attached to this message.


Note: Do not accept this invitation unless you know and trust the person
who sent it.

As in mentioned in Part 1 of Windows Remote Assistance, for your safety this invitation is only valid for a limited time so I would advise you to call the person that will be assisting you to make the necessary arrangements in advance.

You will receive a message that confirms your invitation was received and they request permission to view your screen.  Once you grant them permission you can either chat via the Remote Assistance window or you can grant them permission to take control of your computer as if they were sitting in front of it.

  1. My spouse and I stumbled over here different page and thought
    I should check things out. I like what I see so i am just following you.
    Look forward to looking at your web page yet again.

  2. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my
    4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit
    crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  3. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d without a doubt donate to this superb blog! I suppose for now i’ll
    settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to
    my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates
    and will talk about this blog with my Facebook group.
    Talk soon!

  4. Hi there! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I’m trying to
    find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!

      When you say “Site” are you referring to WordPress or a Website? If you’re referring to WordPress, try using a different theme, see if that makes the difference.

      If you are referring to an official Website then consider using one of the templates (if your Web design program has templates) for mobile Websites and dissect it.
