  2. In your computer system tray, right-click on teh GoToMyPC icon and click Invite Guest to PC.
  3. Enter the guest's email address in the To field.
  4. Edit the invitation message, if desired.
  5. Choose when the invitation will expire and click Send.
  6. When prompted, enter your GoToMyPC email address and password to confirm.

Connect with your invited guest

To accept the invitation, your guest will need to click the activation link included in the invitation email. If your guest accepts within the time you allotted, you receive a Guest Arrived notice.

  1. Once your guest accepts your invitation, you will see a Guest Arrived window.
  2. Under Screen Sharing choose the level of guest access you'd like to grant.
  3. Under Sound, choose whether or not the guest can hear sounds from your host computer.
  4. Click OK.
