How to connect Remote Desktop – RDP from Windows – 10

What is a remote desktop protocol (RDP)?

Remote desktop protocol (RDP) is a secure network communications protocol developed by Microsoft. It enables network administrators to diagnose problems that individual users encounter remotely and gives users remote access to their physical work desktop computers. Remote desktop software can use several protocols, including RDP, Independent Computing Architecture (ICA), and virtual network computing (VNC), but RDP is the most commonly used protocol. 


How to connect RDP from Windows 10?

Click Start and search for Remote Desktop Connection.

At the RDC window, type the name or IP address of the remote PC in the Computer field. Click the Show Options button and type the username of the account you’ll use to log in. If you wish to save your credentials so you don’t need to enter them each time, check the box next to Allow me to save credentials and click Connect.

Enter your password at the credentials window. Check the Remember Me box if you don’t want to enter your password each time you use this account. Click OK. You may receive a message saying that the identity of the remote computer cannot be verified. Check the box for Don’t ask me again for connections to this computer and click Yes.
