Administer computers simultaneously in Remote Desktop
With Remote Desktop, you can perform a wide range of hardware and software administrative activities on specific computers, separated into groups. You can do this with lists. Some activities might include:
Keeping users’ software up to date by installing software and related files to client computers
Creating reports that inventory the characteristics of client computer software and hardware
Using remote administration capabilities to perform housekeeping tasks for client computers
For example, a computer lab of Mac desktops may be managed differently than Mac portables carried by each user as they go from class to class. A particular computer can belong to more than one list, giving you flexibility for multicomputer management.
Manage computers shared by more than one user
On computers shared by more than one user, such as a lab, search for files to delete (Search for files), quit apps (Manage files and apps), log users off (Sleep, shut down, log out, or restart a computer), or prepare computers for other users. For information on controlling multiple client computers, see Observe multiple client computers.
