There are two options for using the application.

First option — portable mode of operation, you do not have to install the program, and after launching you can immediately start using it.

Second option — installation on a computer. In this case, the installation occurs from the portable version. The program will offer to install it as soon as you want to close the Portable version or press the appropriate button.

The developers have specifically provided for this installation option. For example, if the user wants to use the program a couple of times, then it makes no sense to install it on the computer. Installation will be needed when you plan to establish uncontrolled access to your computer or use the program every day. After installing the program, it automatically enters Windows startup. This makes it possible to connect to a computer remotely at any time of the day or night. If you have a portable version, then in order to connect to a remote computer, you will need user participation.

To install the program, do the following:

  1. In the main window of the portable version, click on the inconspicuous link "Install AnyDesk on this computer"
    AnyDESK settings
  2. The installation window will start, in which you must specify the path for copying the installation files of the program, check the boxes if you want to create a shortcut in the Start menu; and on desktop;

In order to quickly connect to computers that you have visited before, the program makes special connection previews that are displayed as small desktop pictures.
