With the EOS Utility and a USB cable. You can download both the program and the manual from the Canon Web site. If you bought the camera new, you should have gotten a CD with the program and manual on it, but downloading ensures that you get the latest version.

Although Bob suggested a workable solution that is free, a real photo program like Adobe Lightroom makes that task a whole lot better.  There are others, too.

With powered USB cables you can shoot 75 feet, or more, from the laptop if needed.  Can be a great help, believe me.

I use my Galaxy Note 2 as a monitor when shooting with my 60D. The phone has a program I uploaded called DSLR Controller. This program allows me to use my phone not only as a monitor, but a remote control as well. I do some real estate photography where I elevate my camera on a 20 foot pole and can see and fire the camera using my Note 2.

 

I also have the software that came with the camera to use a laptop for the same functions, but I find the Note 2 is not as bulky when taking a shot and moving to another location and shooting again.

 

So LOTS of options are available!
