15. Hiding Local Desktop for Chrome Remote Desktop
By default Chrome Remote Desktop will always show locally what is happening when you remotely connect. This disables this feature and presents a login screen instead, allowing you to work privately remotely. CRD will open a connection, then locally connect to remote desktop to hide your current session.
Installing CRD (Chrome Remote Desktop):
Sign in to Chrome.
Disable all sync’ing with account (if wanted).
