    Remote Desktop Connection Manager and .vdp file?

    I'd like to use Remote Desktop Connection Manager to connect to a remote desktop. However, I have to access the remote desktop through an .rdp file. Is there some way to use Remote Desktop Connection Manager with this file?

    Thanks!

    I recently found that I can no longer connect to my HP notebook from other computers on the private network even though I know the credentials to be correct.

    Thank you for giving us the edition of your Windows 10. Since you have Windows 10 Pro, your other computers should be able to remotely access your HP computer using Remote Desktop Connection. An issue with the settings of Remote Desktop Connection on your
    HP computer can be the reason why you're unable to connect remotely to this device. Remote Desktop Connection is a feature that is only available with the Pro versions of Windows. We have a dedicated forum that handles concerns about Remote Desktop Connection.
    It is best that you post your Remote Desktop Connection concern in our Remote Desktop clients TechNet forum. The community members
    there can properly assist you on how to resolve the remote connection issue.

    Best regards.

    Welcome to the forum.

    1. The name of the computer you wish to connect to.
    2. The user name and password you would use to log into that computer. For security reasons Remote Desktop requires that the computer has a password. This can be changed with a group policy but this is not recommend.

    Note that the computer you are connecting to must be Windows 10 Pro or higher. Windows 10 Home does not support this feature.

    If the computer name is Laptop-PC and you have a user account on that computer called Mcgoo, you would enter Laptop-PC as the computer name and Mcgoo as username, using the Mcgoo's password on that computer.

    • What is the operating system of that remote computer? Exact version and edition please, for instance Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 8.1 Pro.
    • Is the remote computer on the same network than the client, the computer you are connecting from? For instance, are both computers on your home network?
    • Are the incoming remote connections enabled on the remote computer?

    both computers are windows 10.(the free up grade,so not sure which version)
    remote access is enabled on both computers,
    they are connected via a home network.

    ps after checking,they are both windows 10 pro,
