I suggest you ...

Integrate a file manager into AnyDesk

Basically, this would allow a user to open up a separate window with two panels on it. The panel on the right would have the files and folders of the computer the user is physically at, and the left panel would have the file/folder structure of the remote computer that is currently being accessed.

Another cool possibility would be to allow the user to move files between two remote computers. This would prevent the hassle of first copying a file to your computer, and then copying it to the remote computer that you wanted it on in the first place.

        I would vote against this. Stuff like that is the entry point to making Anydesk complicated and huge.

        If you add a FileManager, please create a Setting entry that can disable the FileTransfer if necessary, as not all users want to have a file dialog open.

        Hello, I would like to let you know that file transferring is really a problem with anydesk.
        The copy paste method has not worked in any of my sessions.
        Unfortunately I will not renew the license.

        Transfer files via explorer. For example see Ammyy Desktop

        This was posted by 2014 and is already 2016. I do not know what is the limit of the clipboard copy/paste mode to transfer files, but I do know that this method can only be used on full control of the remote desktop. The feature will be nice for transferring files without having the control of the remote desktop. The user can be using their computer and at same time I could connect without viewing the desktop nor controlling the keyboard/mouse, browse the folders and copy/retrieve files.

        Seriously guys? The remote PC at the left panel?

        Every tool that I know (TeamViewer, FileZilla, WinSCP, ...) has the local site on the left and the remote site on the right panel.

        So please AnyDesk team, if you really plan to put the remote site on the left panel as suggested, PLEASE do at least add an option to swap remote and local site!

        Is a release date already predictable?

        great idea.
        the left panel with the folder structure should also show exactly as defined on the remote machine. this means also customized favorites, libraries, etc. and all common links like desktop, my documents, and so on.
        thank you.
