NetOp Remote Control is composed by two modules: Host and Guest. The computer with the Host module installed is the one being visited or controlled by the computer with the Guest module installed. From the Guest module you will trigger communications to the Host you want to access and take control over host computer.

All you will see of the application in a regular use is its system tray icon, which you can eliminate from there by choosing the “stealth mode” from the Configuration options of the program. From this icon you can access the following options by right-clicking on it:
- Restore/Show: This command will be Restore if the NetOp Guest Window is minimized into a NetOp Guest button and Show if the NetOp Guest Window is on the screen but possibly hidden by other windows. Select it or double-click the NetOp Guest button to show the NetOp Guest Window in front of other windows.
- Exit: Select this command or the File Menu Exit command to unload NetOp Guest.
