DeskRT – The Essence of AnyDesk

Anydesk Remote Support

What makes AnyDesk so special? Our proprietary DeskRT codec is what makes AnyDesk such a great alternative to TeamViewer. It’s a video codec that allows for stable and almost latency-free data transfer, even in areas with low bandwidths. No other solution can offer this level of reliability. It allows our remote desktop tool to work smoothly and without lag, making it seem as if you’re sitting right in front of your remote device.

Ready to get started?

Install Installation rights at startup start up admin
AnyDesk prompt to enter credentials for the remote client
Actions Menu with no option to request elevation, indicating that AnyDesk is already installed on the remote client.

AnyDesk provides the option to run as administrator (elevated), which enables the user to control applications that are limited to administrators. AnyDesk automatically runs as administrator when installed. A session to such remote client cannot request elevation since it's already granted and displays this option as disabled in the actions menu. By default, the portable (not installed) version has only standard user rights. A process that requires administrator privileges won't be accessible. (e.g. Windows Task Manager)

Note: Create your own custom client, with Request elevation on Startup option to get administrator privileges on startup for remote sessions.

Actions Menu

Note: When AnyDesk is not installed and has no elevation, the UAC prompt cannot be displayed. AnyDesk will show a warning which needs to be resolved by the remote user.

Use Request elevation from the actions menu during session to request elevation for a portable AnyDesk on the remote client in order to control applications running as administrator. This request requires the confirmation of a UAC dialogue. When confirmed, AnyDesk is elevated on the remote client and thus able to control applications running as administrator. In case the credentials have been submitted to the remote client as shown in the image to the right, the remote client has to confirm this operation. Thus, submitting credentials to the remote side cannot be done unattended.

Note: Elevate AnyDesk to run as administrator won't turn the windows session from standard user to administrator. Every UAC action still requires admin credentials. to avoid UAC prompts with credential requests, log on to Windows as Administrator.

Account Types

Windows has two account types: Administrator and Standard User.

Administrator accountsHave complete control. Users with this type of account can change settings globally, install programs and pass the user account control (UAC) request without credentials.
Standard User accountsHave limited control. Users with this type of account can run but not install applications. Users can change system settings, but only settings that won't affect other accounts. Tasks that require elevations can only be confirmed by providing admin credentials.
