Hi,

 

ive taken control of a users PC via Share Desktop facility but I need to make some changes for the user which require an admin login to run with elevated permissions but it doesn't work.

eg need to access Device Manger and Run as Admin but unable to enter my admin details so I cant do what I need to do

 

thanks a mil

Not possible, Teams is meant to share screens for presentations, not meant to be a remote administration tool. Need to look into TeamViewer or LogmeinResucue etc. If you are needing to get that low level into remote administration.

@Chris Webb  thanks a mil....ill have to renew my Teamviewer license so :)

Yeah it would be nice to have. I know it's on the uservoice and they've talked about maybe tweaking that so you could do a bit more but as of now it is what it is. I'm the same way, would like to just use Teams cause I only do support here and there and don't want to spend the money on a full license to do once in a blue moon support and Teams does it most of the time but sometimes hit that roadblock.

@Chris Webb maybe one day Chris :) thanks again

Quick question, sometimes during presentation I would lose the mouse control I can move but I cannot click onto pages or even simply open powerpoint/browser etc. so I stop control then I request control again then it works for a little then it stops again.  what could be? like I said it works for 5 minutes or more then stops.  thanks @Chris Webb

There have been numerous users reporting this kind of strange behavior! Hopefully it will be fixed soon!
