This article will explain how to connect to a remote Windows Server by using the Remote Desktop Connection application included with most versions of Microsoft Windows.

Step 1

First we need to locate the Remote Desktop Connection application that comes included with Windows. This is usually found in the Start Menu, but can also be found at All Programs – Accessories.
