Bonus tip: Transfer files from/to remote computer for once
If the computer that you want to exchange files isn’t your own PC and you just need to transfer files for once or twice, it’s OK to start file transfer through Device ID rather than the same account. Here are the detailed steps:
Step 1. Run AnyViewer, sign in to an AnyViewer account on your own computer.
Step 2. Launch AnyViewer on the other PC and it’s available to skip login. Locate the Device ID of the computer.
Step 3. On your own computer, click Connect, input the Device ID of the remote computer, choose File transfer and click Connect button.
Step 4. There are two ways: Send a request to your partner and Input security code.
If your partner is on the other end to accept your request, you can choose the first one and click OK. If your partner has sent a temporary security code of the remote computer to you, you can choose the second one. No matter which one you choose, you can access the File Transfer window and then transfer files from your local computer to the remote computer or from the remote computer to your local PC.
