Holidays are coming but there may be circumstances that require that we have to work remotely and also do it connected remotely. It is a function that We can activate and use in a few steps if we have Windows 10 and here we will see how we can carry them out.
The remote desktop function allows you to work remotely on a computer that we do not have at that time. And we can activate it to facilitate access to ourselves or the necessary person at that moment. And also, to be able to do it from any device.
Before continuing we must take into account a requirement and we are going to require a team that has Windows 10 Pro. If we use Windows 10 Home, we will not be able to count on the remote desktop function.
Steps to follow
First we will access the menu "Configuration" of Windows by means of the cogwheel that we find in the lower left area of the screen.
We will see different options and among all we choose the section "System" which offers us access to the settings of our operating system.
Within "System" we will see a window with a column in the left area between which we must search and mark "Remote Desktop".
Once we select that option, we will see how Windows ask if we want "Enable Remote Desktop". We will see a window with a message as a warning, warning that the selected users will be able to access our equipment. If we agree, click on "Confirm".
In addition, in the section "Advanced configuration"we must mark "Require computers use network-level authentication". In this way, what we do is limit the connection options so that not everyone has access to our equipment. It will be we who will determine who may or may not have access.
And is that among the options offered by the "Remote access", we have the possibility to determine which users can connect to the computer (very important if we care about privacy).
We have already activated "Remote Access" and we will see that the system offers us a name for the team. This will be the one that we will have to use to connect to the computer through the remote desktop client application, which is available for Windows 10, iOS, Android and macOS.
