    Remote Desktop options greyed out


    Hi,
    Hoping this is the correct area for this issue and that maybe someone has some suggestions because I have been unable to find anything.

    It's quite simple, the Remote Desktop options have both become greyed out. The 'allow remote help requests' is still available.

    I have seen posts saying to check group policy, but I have done that and I have no group policy settings set.

    Any thoughts or suggestions much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    :)

    Hi Angahran,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. I understand the inconvenience you are facing. I will certainly help you with this.

    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.

    First use the DISM tool and System File Checker for repairing any missing or corrupted system files:


    • Click Start.

    • Type cmd, and then press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to open elevated command prompt (I.e. Command prompt with admin rights).

    • If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click
      Continue.

    • Type or copy paste the below command lines into it:

      DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth


      DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth


      sfc /scannow
    To close the Administrator: Command prompt window, type Exit, and then press Enter. Reboot your system to see if problem still occurs.

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.
