How to Enable Remote Desktop for Windows 10

Windows Remote Desktop allows one computer to connect to another computer on the same network. The desktop of another computer appears on your computer. You also have control of the mouse, the keyboard, and selected peripherals on the other computer. You have complete control, as if you were sitting at the other computer.
