Remote Desktop question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does the computer that you are remoting in from have to have Windows 10 professional installed on it. 

    It is my understanding that you must have Windows 10 professional installed on the computer that you will be remoting into.

  • No. Mstsc.exe runs fine on my Win10 Home PC. In order to connect to another Home PC I have set up UltraVNC to connect to the desktop. 

    If you are connecting to a server, you may need to disable NLA.

  • You need credentials on the remote computer with remote access rights e.g. the User Account you are logging in with is a member of the Local Administrator's group.on the remote computer. The account must have a password.

    When logging in, enter the credentials as REMOTE_COMPUTER_NAME\User.Name to tell the remote computer you are remoting onto it using credentials that belong to it.

    we can remote access from win10 home to win10 pro by using Microsoft remote desktop connection software,but we can remote access from win10 pro to win10 home by using Microsoft remote desktop connection software by default.
    if we want to remote access from win10 pro to win10 home ,we can install third party remote software(Tight vnc, teamviewer etc) on both win10 pro and win10 home or use build -in Microsoft remote assistant(quick assist) I think this method will implement your remote idea.
