    Home Network Problem

    Have three computers on my network,two windows 10 and one windows7. Problem is with Remote Desktop Connection,works perfect with the windows7 computer. Can't get it to connect with the other windows10 computer,wants a user and password. There is no password on the computer? Why does it work on windows7 and not 10?

    Remote desktop needs a username and usually a password. You can set it to remember the username and password. Also, Home versions of Windows 7 and 10 cannot be Remote Desktopped into. You may need to use VNC or Teamviewer.
