How to Use LogMeIn


LogMeIn is an online application that allows you to work remotely by accessing your home or work computer from another computer anywhere. The application is easy to install and use. However, you will need to have the main computer turned on in order to access it through LogMeIn. After installing the application, you can start accessing your home or work computer anytime from anywhere.

  • Navigate to the webpage LogMeIn in the Reference section. On the home page, position your mouse over “Products” from the tabs at the top of the page. Select “LogMeIn Free” from the drop down menu.

  • Create an account by clicking on “Create an account” from the right side of the webpage. Enter your email address, choose a password, choose a username and select your country. Click on “Continue” to proceed. Click on “Add this computer” from the next page. On the next page, click on “Install LogMeIn” and follow the prompts. You will be asked to give the computer a name. Write this name down. After the software is installed you can proceed to the next step.

  • Use a different computer to login to LogMeIn. Use the username and password that you used to sign up. The information was also sent to your email account that you used to sign up.

  • Select the computer that you wish to access. Double click the computer icon. Note: If you have multiple computers registered, make sure that you know that name of the computer that you wish to access and click on that computer icon.

  • Allow LogMeIn to connect to the host computer. This only takes about one minute. You will see the host computer desktop. You can perform any work, open any files or work in any software applications as you would if you were sitting in front of the computer itself.

  • Print any documents that you need to print from the host computer as you would if you were sitting at the remote computer. However, the printer that the computer will use will be the one hooked up to the host and not any printer hooked up to the remote computer.

  • Turn off the host computer after you are done working just as you would if you were sitting at the host computer. Note: Once you turn off the host computer, you will not be able to remotely turn it on again. The host must be physically turned on at the computer itself.
