Though some folks out there may have only migrated off of Windows XP just over a year ago, and 2020 (end of life for Windows 7) may feel like a lifetime away, others are already in migration mode for today’s widely anticipated release of Windows 10.
For those most eager to get Windows 10 into their environments, LogMeIn Central and Pro are ready to handle the new OS, all while maintaining a consistent experience to ease the migration for your business. While running Windows 10, you can use LogMeIn for all of the remote access needs you count on every day including connectivity, support, and automation. There are no updates required.
Like other modern browsers that have gotten rid of plugins, users of Windows Edge won’t see any more plugin installation prompts. Instead, when they first make a remote control or file manager connection in the browser, they will be prompted to download a small support file (.exe file on PC). The LogMeIn Client executable automatically opens a new window and displays the remote control or file manager screen. In fact, if you have ever used our online meeting product, join.me, it’s almost an identical experience.
The only difference from an experience standpoint is that your remote access session will be in a new window, not in the browser, itself. And that itself introduces some new benefits, the biggest being that you can now have multiple remote access sessions going at the same time – a perfect solutions for IT pros looking to multi-task management and troubleshooting activities across multiple computers.
