  1. Personal desktop preferences keep changing a remote computer


    I had to access my personal Outlook account on a work computer using the Windows 10 Outlook app. This meant I logged in using my Microsoft account. After logging back off, I noticed my personal computer's desktop preferences (ie... background and toolbar position) were now on the work computer. The work computer is logged in using the work credentials, and I can see my account as being disconnected from the system, but my co-worker and I are in a desktop battle of sorts. If I change the toolbar and the background, she sees it when she logs in, and when she changes it back, it affects my home computer. I can't find anything on the internet about this, and it's become extremely annoying. How do I fully disconnect my account from her computer so we aren't constantly changing preferences?

  2. Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer

    We suggest that you disable any security program on your computer and check if it resolves the issue.

    NOTE: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install other software, you should re-enable it as
    soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    Then follow the steps below to ensure remote desktop is enabled:

    • Click Start.
    • Click on File Explorer.
    • Right-click This PC.
    • Select Properties.
    • Click Remote settings in the upper left hand corner.
    • Ensure the option Allow remote connection to this computer and
      Allow Remote Assistance connection to this computer is selected.
    • Click Apply and OK.
    • Reboot the PC for the changes to take effect.

    Let us know the result.

  4. Personal desktop preferences keep changing a remote computer

    Windows 7 Remote Desktop

    I was wondering if it's possible to change Windows Remote Desktop port number? I believe it uses port 3389. A friend of mine wants to connect to his work computer from home, but it's not possible because port 3389 hasn't been forwarded. And he does not have access to do so. Teamviewer works perfectly fine, but he prefers Remote Desktop
