Enabling Windows Remote DesktopMarch 3rd, 2009
Windows Remote Desktop allows users to use a Windows computer while not sitting in front of it. This is ideal for remote support. For security this feature is not switched on in the standard installation and so must be explicitly activated.
In order to use Remote Desktop you must have a password set up on your machine.
Below is a simple guide to switching this feature on:
- Load File Explorer
- Right click on My Computer select Properties
- Click the Remote tab
- Check Allow users to connect remotely to this computer
On Windows 2008: Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop (less secure)
- Click Ok
