    Remote Desktop issue


    Can someone help me, I'm having trouble with my win8.1 Remote desktop... I want to access my win8.1 from my other pc via rdp, but on the remote setting Properties only the "Remote Assistance" menu is there... There is no menu for the remote desktop which can be selected to allow remote desktop connection to this computer. Please i need help! Thanks.

    What edition of Windows 8.1 are you using? Only Professional and Enterprise editions are able to act as a server for Remote Desktop. Otherwise you will need a third party alternative.
