Microsoft demos new Quick Assist Remote Desktop feature in Windows 10 Anniversary Update (video)


Windows 10 Anniversary Update has a few obvious new features, such as the changes to Cortana, the lock screen, the start menu and action centre, but also a lot of subtle improvements to make the OS easier to use.

One of the changes introduced is improvements to the remote assistance feature, which is now called Quick Assist.

Unlike Remote Desktop the app is simple and easy to use and only offers the user two options Ask for help or Provide assistance to another user. If asking for assistance you have to provide a code which would allow the connection to be made. The app is optimised for Windows 10 and offers support for using a stylus to add annotations, which may be particularly useful when providing assistance and explanations.

In the video below Microsoft demos the feature in action.

The app can be found in the start menu of Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
