Get help with computer problems—or help someone else—with Quick Assist. The Quick Assist app in Windows 10 lets two people share a computer over a remote connection so that one person can help solve problems on the other person’s computer.
Here’s how it works: The person who needs help gets a code from a designated helper and then uses that code to give permission to the helper. The helper can then take control of that person’s computer and help out.
Give control of your computer only to someone you trust.
