How to create direct links to Chrome Remote Desktop connections
Posted by ark, ,
1. Right click on the computer name and inspect element.
2. Look down at the bottom and copy the id of the element you selected (it might be in the parent element). It starts with host_
3. Click the * in the URL bar to save the current url as a bookmark. then click edit.
4. add ?mode=me2me&hostId= and then the id you copied (without the host_ part)

You're all done!

The url should look something like this...

chrome-extension://gbchcblahblahblahjmpp/main.html?mode=me2me&hostId=3c2fblah-blah-blah3477

While making this I noticed that the chrome url bar will change the inter letter spacing (is it kerning if it's on every letter?) while resizing a window to avoid abbreviating the url. Neat!
