Enabling remote desktop on another computer is incredibly easy to achieve. Now that the internet is more available to anyone than ever, almost everyone can enable remote desktop on their end. In this guide, we’ll show you two of the easiest solutions to enable remote desktop on another computer.
1. Remote Access Software - Remote access software (or sometimes referred to as third-party software) is a type of program that allows users to connect to another computer remotely without their physical presence. Once the connection is established, the users can perform several computing tasks as if they are sitting right in front of the remote computer. From there, they can access files, use apps, and even troubleshoot technical issues.
Remote access software, just like any other computer programs out there, needs to be downloaded and installed on both the local and remote computers. Once installed, the users can now connect both of the devices to each other even from an off-site location. The good thing about remote access software is that it allows users to connect to remote devices even outside of a local network. It also authenticates users and encrypts remote sessions to allow for a more secure remote access experience.
However, it is important to note that some remote access software out there aren’t for free. You may need to spend a couple of dollars just so you can have one on your end. Luckily, a couple of remote access software in the market right now can be purchased for free.
2. Windows Remote Desktop Connection - Windows Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) is a free Microsoft feature that comes in all Windows-running computer. Just like remote access software, this tool allows users to access another computer from a remote location. However, it is important to note that Windows Remote Desktop Connection is disabled by default. Fortunately, turning this feature on is incredibly easy to accomplish.
