I have seen several other ScreenConnect users ask about creating a desktop shortcut for the host to quickly connect to existing sessions without having to log into the ScreenConnect admin console in the browser.

There is an extension that can be used to accomplish this called ScreenConnector. This extension has been around for a few years now and still works with the current version. The forum post below is in reference to this extension but is a bit outdated.


Below are instructions on how to install and use this extension

1. While logged in as admin go to Extensions menu and then select “Browse Online Extensions” at the bottom


2. Scroll until you find ScreenConnector extension and select Install


3. Select one of the tabs on the left hand side where it says Support, Meeting or Access and then select Cloud Account Administrator in bottom left. Then proceed with downloading ScreenConnector


4. From Downloads folder on workstation find ScreenConnector.exe and save to Desktop. You can then right clock on it and choose to Pin to Taskbar if you prefer as well.

5. When first opening the tool you be prompted to enter your admin credentials and you will need to manually type out the name of the Session you want to connect to and select Connect. You should then be connected to your session and this session name will remain in your Session list as you use the tool moving forward.
