    RDP in Windows 10 Home


    Currently my OS is Windows 10 Home. From time to time i need to connect to my pc at work, using remote web workplace. Unfortunately the Home edition does not come with the support of remote desktop. It keeps asking to install RDP 6.0 or later...

    Does anyone know any alternative so i can still keep connecting to my pc at work via RWW?

    Thanks in advance

    It works fine on my Windows 10 home version connecting to a windows 7 pro, If you are trying to connect to a home version computer it is not supported you will have to use another program like teamviewer (free version available) or VNC (paid). I opened remote desktop by typing it in the search bar
