Built into every Mac is an incredible feature called Screen Sharing that lets you view and control one Mac from another.
Just because it's built in, doesn't mean Apple makes it easy to find. Such is the case with Screen Sharing. In this Quick Tip, I'll show you how to move the Screen Sharing application to your Applications folder, add it to the Dock, and even access another computer, on the same local area network, or LAN, with a single click.
Instead of literally moving the Screen Sharing application, you'll actually be creating a soft link, or alias, through Terminal. To create the soft link, paste this command into Terminal:
ln -s /System/Library/CoreServices/Screen\ Sharing.app /Applications/Screen\ Sharing
Let me know, in the comments below, how you are using Screen Sharing!
