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.
- Click Start (Windows Icon), click Settings, and then click System:
- On the window that opens, click the Remote Desktop tab, find the Enable Remote Desktop slide switch, and click on the right side of the switch to change it to “On”. Then close the window (there are no “OK” or “Cancel” buttons on this type of dialog window):
- A pop-up window will then appear asking for confirmation that you want to do this.
NOTE: To connect to another computer using Remote Desktop, it is necessary for that computer to have Remote Desktop enabled as well.
Remote Desktop is not available in some versions of Windows 10. An upgrade may be required, which can be done online.
