I have a computer with windows 8. Is there a way to access this computer from work with team viewer but using another desktop? I want the person at home to still be able to use the computer, watch a movie, anything...

Please specify, what is the another desktop. – Buscar웃 Apr 27 '13 at 16:03
@Buscar웃 What do you mean? Other windows desktop in the same PC. For example if I had a computer and you would want to do something in my computer remotely and in this time I want to watch a movie in full screen and not be bothered by whatever you are doing remotely... – spauny Apr 27 '13 at 17:05
I do not understand your question. Just turn off the teamviewer screen on the guest computer than? (minimize it). You do not have to watch it. – Buscar웃 Apr 27 '13 at 17:10
@Buscar웃 I can minimize it and watch a movie in full screen but what about the person that is accessing remotely my computer? He will see my movie in full screen and couldn't do anything else... – spauny Apr 27 '13 at 17:33

By looking at your conversation, no. If someone is accessing the desktop remotely (via GUI), then it is not possible for one person to watch a movie and the other do what they want. The exception to this is if you are just using the FTP feature.
