How Do I Use Remote Desktop Connection?

It is a Microsoft built-in feature that provides users with the ability to access another computer remotely. Windows RDC, in general, can only be used on the same network. It is also disabled by default, so anyone who wants to use it to access another device remotely needs to turn it on first.

To allow Windows RDC, follow these steps below

  • Launch System by clicking the Start button.

  • Right-click Computer.

  • Select Properties.

  • Select Remote settings. Provide a password when prompted to do so.

  • Select one of the three options under Remote Desktop

  • Click Select Users

  • Click Add in the Remote Desktop Users box

  • Do these following steps in the Select Users or Groups box

  • Select the location you want to search in the Location box

  • Enter the name of the computer you want to add in the Enter the object names to select box.

  • Once the name is displayed in the Remote Desktop Users box, click OK.

  • Click OK.
