Tutorial To Enable Remote Desktop Sharing On Windows Computers

The Microsoft Windows operating systems allow desktop sharing, or connecting to another computer to view the remote computer's desktop, through the Remote Desktop application, which was formerly known as Terminal Services. In Windows 7 and Vista, the Remote Desktop feature must be enabled before the computer may be shared with other users.

Follow the set of guidelines given below, recommended by the efficient Windows online support team in order to enable remote desktop sharing on your computer.

Instructions to enable remote desktop sharing

  • First of all, click on the Windows Start button, which is displayed on the lower left corner of your Windows desktop screen. Clicking on this icon will open up the Windows Start Menu on your computer screen and you will be able to select the various options from it.
  • Right-click on the Computer button from the Windows Start menu, and then select the Properties option to configure the properties. The Computer Properties interface will now open on the screen of your computer.
  • Click on the Remote Settings button located in the left selection pane of your computer screen.
  • Click on the Remote tab displayed in the System Properties dialog box.
  • Click one of the two radio buttons displayed next to the Allow options in the Remote Desktop section of the dialog box. The first Allow option allows computers running any version of Remote Desktop to connect to the computer and is the less secure option. The second option allows computers running only Remote Desktop with Network Level Authentication, which is more secure. Select the first Allow option for home networks.
  • Click on the Select Users button, if you want to limit access to only one or a few users. The Users interface will open on the screen of your computer. Click on each user to allow and then click on the OK button.
  • Click on the OK button to save the settings and exit from the System Properties dialog box.
