    Windows 10 Home: Remote Desktop?


    Is Remote Desktop only available on Windows 10 PRO? I have Win10 Home and the option to "Allow remote connections to this computer" is not present.

    Correct. Remote Desktop (RDP) has always been a built-in feature of the Pro and higher versions, leaving Home without RDP. There are other 3rd party solutions though which can be used with the Home version, including VNC.

    Thanks, that's what I thought.
    I set up a mini PC with win10 home and I use Teamviewer to connect to it, but I'm having some issues with Teamviewer. Basically, Teamviewer is a screen capture program and since the Mini PC doesn't have a screen it constantly gives error messages. Somehow I need to trick Teamviewer into thinking that it has a screen. Or try VNC...

    I should clarify I can't confirm 100% through actual usage that VNC or any other 3rd party remote desktop tool works with Windows 10. I can only confirm that RDP is not included in the Home edition.

    I have been running RealVNC on two Win10 PC's without any difficulties. I use VNC rather than RDP for the options available.
