    Windows 10 home vs windows 1o pro remote connection


    Does anyone know if you have to have windows pro in order to remote from laptop to networked server or will windows 10 home work efficiently?

    Hi Sonja, welcome to the Ten Forums.

    You can use the Home edition as a remote client, to remotely connect to a remote host which must be Pro, Education or Enterprise edition.

    In other words: the computer FROM which you connect to other computers using the remote desktop connection can have any edition, including Home, but the computer you connect TO must have Pro or better.

    I would be using a Windows 10 laptop to remote into Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard.

    Windows Server editions have the remote host feature, they can be connected to from any edition of Windows using remote desktop connection. You are good to go.
