Microsoft Office for Mac software is the perfect array of business and study tools for Apple users. Whether you are a busy student, a working professional, or an everyday user that likes the streamlined functionality of Microsoft Office products, then we at SoftwareKeep, have a variety of MS Office products to suit your needs. Up until recently, there was no way to open a Microsoft Access database directly on a Mac. However, there are, at the time of writing, five apps, all available from the Mac App Store, which allow you to open and view data in Access database tables.

Computers are ubiquitous, and you've probably had an instance where you are using a computer in one place and you need to access a computer in another location. For example, you're at a coffee shop with a laptop, and you need something from the desktop computer in your home office. You might even want to give people you know the ability to access a computer when they are away. This ability is called remote access. Macworld reader Sandy has three remote access scenarios she’d like to get set up: • One contractor accessing an iMac remotely to use QuickBooks on the iMac.

But that contractor is using Windows. • Another contractor who has a Mac and needs to access a different iMac on a daily basis. • The first iMac might sometimes need to be accessed remotely by the second contractor and by Sandy. There’s a lot to unpack here, because of how Apple manages accounts and remote access, and how third-party remote-access tools interact with macOS as well. Sandy is also concerned about security, making sure these contractors don’t have access to just anything. If this were an all-Mac situation and just you, it would be relatively easy: • Set up a separate account for yourself and each other party. • Enable Screen Sharing in the Sharing system preference pane.

Cyberduck. • Enable Back To My Mac in the iCloud preference pane. Now, when you’re connected to the internet on your local network or anywhere else, you see your other computer in the list of Devices in the Finder sidebar, and can connect to that. See how I presented the easiest case first?

Well, it’s not so easy after that. Third-party software, like TeamViewer, allows robust remote access to a system across many platforms (including macOS and Windows as hosts and iOS, Android, and other devices as clients), but doesn’t interact with macOS accounts. Whatever account is logged in has full access. If it works for you to set up a computer logged into a particular account with just the files and apps necessary, then TeamViewer is a solution. You could pair this with setting up that account with Parental Controls to limit what it can do as well (see the Parental Controls preference pane). (Note that TeamViewer relies on the honor system for business use: you can use it for free for business uses without any feature limitations, but you’re violating its terms of use.) IDG Messages lets you ask for or offer screen sharing to someone you’re communicating with. With another Mac user, you can rely on Messages to allow connections for remote screen sharing, and I’d also recommend setting up a separate macOS account for this purpose, likely also with Parental Controls enabled and logged into the appropriate iCloud account for messaging.
