How Do I Setup Remote Desktop on Windows 10?

To setup Remote Desktop on Windows, consider these remote access solution below:

1. Remote Access - Windows Remote Desktop Connection or RDC - Windows Remote Desktop Connection or RDC is free Microsoft built-in feature that allows users to connect to another computer remotely using a local device. Once connected, the user can now access files, use apps, and even perform administrative tasks on the remote computer. Windows RDC has been a prominent feature of Windows since the first introduction of XP Pro. It is also disabled by default, so anyone who wishes to use this to establish a remote connection needs to turn this feature on first. To enabled Windows RDC, follow these steps accordingly:

  • Click Start

  • Type in remote settings into the Cortana search box

  • Select Allow remote access to your computer

  • From the System Properties, click the Remote tab

  • Click Allow remote connections to this computer

  • Make sure the box beside Network Level Authentication is ticked. This will ensure that you have a more secure remote access experience

However, it is important to note that Windows RDC, in general, can only be used on the same network. You may need to establish a Virtual Private Network or expose your device directly to the internet first before you can use it to remotely access another Windows 10-running computer.
