As an accountant, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve needed to access the files on my Dell Inspiron when I’m at a client’s home. I usually do a good job of bringing my laptop with me, but I’ll occasionally leave it behind
There’s a lot of remote access programs I found, but TeamViewer was pretty much what I was looking for. While it’s free to use for noncommercial use, I bought it for my business. It does what it claims and lets me log in to my computer at home no matter where I’m at. I mostly use it to bring up client information and look at files I need on the job. So far, TeamViewer has worked out well enough for my day-to-day use.
