Every mac comes with an inbuilt feature called Screen Sharing, which allows users to share their screen with other Mac’s on the same network.
This sharing goes beyond just letting them see what’s going on, on your computer, but also lets them control your computer remotely through the link.
Since this is already an inbuilt feature, it goes beyond the parameters of Screen Casting, which often relies on third party apps to get the job done.
Thankfully for Apple users, the company has made sure that this feature is easily accessible and can be activated within minutes, with the help of these simple steps:
- Open the “System Preferences” app.
- Open the “Sharing” section.
- Select “Screen Sharing” from the left check list.
- Once it’s activated, you will see a green light along with “Screen Sharing: On” message.
- Select the users you want to give access to, through the “Allow Access For” section.
- You might be asked for your password to save the changes.
- Close the System Preferences window.
- Switch to the other mac.
- Open the “Finder” app.
- Find the computer you want to control in the left panel, under the Shared section.
- Click on it, and then click on the “Share Screen” button located in the top right.
- Enter the User name and password for any one of the accounts you gave access to before.
- Wait for the connection to establish.
- Once connected, you will be able to easily view and control the screen of the other mac.
With these steps, you can easily share the screen of your mac with any other mac on the same network. Have fun.
