My screen looks a little different than the one pictured. I’m working on procedures and instructions for our Summer Interns.
I have access to the copier from my desktop. Would it be possible to see the exact screen of our copier on my desktop so I can take a screenshot to include in the instructions?
You can use VNC viewer to view/control the copier’s display from your computer. Instructions for setting this up can be found at the following link. You’ll need to download VNC Viewer, it’s a free program.
