    What would you recommend for remotely accessing a Mac that's lightweight? And free or cheap? I don't need many features, just the basics. No file sharing or printing. And I'd prefer to not have to install something heavy on my machines.

    I'd want to remotely access my Mini and MBP which are at home, from the road, likely a Windows machine.

    I played with Chrome Remote Desktop once and might go that route again.

    Thanks in advance

    You got an iPad or iPhone? If so,there are apps available for that. All you need,is an iPhone,and internet access for both iPhone and computer.

    I do have an iPhone. In an ideal world I could access the home Mac from a Web browser.
