How can I stop people watching my remote control session?

You can blank the screen of a Windows 7 computer while you’re remotely controlling it, so people in the vicinity can’t see what you’re doing. This is equivalent to turning the monitor of the remote computer off and not allowing it to be turned back on again until you disconnect.


Unfortunately, you can’t as yet blank the screen of any other computer, including a Windows 8 or Windows 10 computer.

You can disable the local mouse and keyboard of a Windows computer, so even if people can see what you’re doing they can’t interrupt you.
