HowTo: Group offline computers in separate group at TeamViewer

TeamViewer is a very handy remote control / remote support and screen sharing application with a free version for personal use only. I’ve been using it for some time now since friends and family tend to contact me for support issues and I’m very pleased with its simple installation and use (a user can even run it without installing it on their machine – if they choose to install it they can optionally select to have it also work unattended, where the remote controller can even see and use the system login screen).

Having many computers grouped in my contact list (I use a group for my home machines, one for family contacts and one for machines of friends), I prefer to tell it to show offline machines at a separate group. That option is available at “TeamViewer options” dialog, at “Computer & Contacts”, as shown below:


On the left image below you can see (obviously I’ve hidden machine aliases from my contacts list) how contacts appear by default, and on the right you can see Offline Computers grouped separately, letting you easily focus onto online ones and easily see if a certain computer has come up online (btw TeamViewer by default also shows you Toast notifications at the taskbar tray when contacts go online).

    I think team viewer is great software. Yesterday something wrong happened with my system so I asked my software engineer friend to take a sneak peek into my system and solve the problem. Thanks!

    Hey. I have tried using TeamViewer remote desktop tool and it is really great. In addition to TeamViewer, I have even tried various other remote support services such as logmeinrescue, gosupportnow, GoToMyPC etc. and they are good too.
