Anyplace Control is a remote administration program that enables users to access a computer in a remote location. The program displays the remote computer on the user’s screen so that it can be accessed using the keyboard and the mouse. It can be used even if the software is not installed in the remote computer. Additionally, the program comes with a file transfer tool for easy transferring of files from computer to computer. There is also a chat feature for communicating with a user on another system.
