    Remote desktop


    I just upgraded to Win 10 Pro so I could have remote desktop but I can't seem to connect. On the host computer I set the switch to ON (allowing remote access). I have tried connecting using computer name, IP address but nothing seems to work. I can remote with another app but was trying to use remote desktop instead. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Oh - the host is WIn 10 Pro and the laptop trying to connect is Win 10 home but I know that is not the issue as one can access as I've done with other systems.

    :)

  2. remote desktop

    Hello,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    Please help me with the below details to understand your issue in a better way:



    1. Are you using the Microsoft remote desktop app?


    If you are using the Microsoft remote desktop app downloaded from
    Microsoft store then, I suggest you to follow the steps to
    fix problems with apps from Microsoft Store
    .



    If the issue still persists with the Microsoft remote desktop app, then you can contact the support team by going to the

    link
    and scrolling down to the bottom and clicking on
    Microsoft remote desktop support under the Publisher info.



    However, if you are using the Remote desktop connection, which comes pre-installed with Windows 10, then I suggest you to please post your question in the
    TechNet forum.



    Hope it helps.
