When you allow remote desktop connections to your PC, you can use another device to connect to your PC and have access to all of your apps, files, and network resources as if you were sitting at your desk.

    By default, Remote Desktop Services.

    "open secpol.msc

    go to \Local Policies\User Rights Assignment

    double-click on Allow log on through Remote Desktop

    Services --> Add Users or Group --> enter Remote Desktop Users

    Start-->Run-->services.msc

    Look for Remote Desktop Services and make sure the Log on account is Network System, not Local Service.
