  • This is super helpful. Thanks! Can I ask you a question? When I use Teamviewer to access my desktop computer from my laptop and I print something to the desktop printer, the dekstop computer starts to buzz loudly. I’ve only tried this while using the laptop in the same room as the remote computer. Once I disconnect, it stops. Do you know what it could be or how to stop it? Maybe it wouldn’t happen if there were more distance between the computers? Thanks for your help!
