REMOTE REBOOT

Follow

If you're running Splashtop Streamer 3.1.2.0 or newer, you can remotely reboot a computer or restart a streamer. This can be done from either the web console or the Splashtop Business app (version 3.1.2.1+ for Windows and Mac).

Web Console

Log in at my.splashtop.com. On the computer list, click on the gear icon next to the desired computer and click on the "Reboot computer" option.

A window will open with options to restart the streamer or reboot the computer (in the case of Windows, normal or safe mode).

Splashtop Business App

Starting with Splashtop Business app version 3.1.2.1, you can click on the gear icon next to a computer to find the restart streamer/reboot computer options.

Disabling Reboot Capability

By default, any admin on the Splashtop team can execute these reboot options. It is possible for the owner of the Splashtop team to disable the reboot options for all computers in the account. Log in at my.splashtop.com and click on Management > Settings. To disable, simply uncheck the corresponding box.

Notes

  1. For Windows 10 safe mode reboot, Windows disables Wi-Fi by default. So, if the computer is using Wi-Fi, you will not have remote access into the computer if you reboot into safe mode. Someone would need to manually turn on Wi-Fi at the computer. This is standard Windows 10 safe mode behavior.
  2. After doing a safe mode reboot, the next reboot will be a normal reboot. The only exception is when the next reboot command happens when Windows is not logged in.

    @D,

    We planned to add the ability to apps on handset devices, phones and tablets, but there currently is still no solid time schedule yet.

    At this time, you can open the web browser on phones and tablets to use the feature.

    Thanks,
