        “Reasonably priced requires a subscription” ?

        There are free tools out there. I use free portable TeamViewer.
        There is also the free AnyDesk that supports : Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android, Linux, FreeBSD, Raspberry Pie, ChromeOS.

        Anydesk is great because of the number of platforms supported and you can use the free versions forever for personal use or a reasonably priced business version.  If you install a plugin you can even control your Android devices and give each device a unique alias for easy access.  You do have to pay to get the address book but it remembers all the devices you access so that is not an issue.

        I left TeamViewer Free when it clamped down on free use.

        I then started AnyDesk Free and it has worked very nicely on all my PCs and also its iPhone app.
