The world has undergone a drastic change of late, as everything is slowly being digitized. Technology has evolved so much that each year, new tools are developed that completely change the ecosystem of the industry. These can range from multi-featured image editors to modern-looking desktop environments.
There have also been software applications developed to provide users with remote access to other devices, including computers running Windows, Linux or macOS, or Android mobile phones.
One such tool is KDE Connect, a Linux-based application that allows users to not only share their files between different devices but also gain complete remote control of them.
