    Remote Desktop for Win 10 Home

    Last week I set up, and used, the Remote Desktop utility for Windows 10 Home, but I have been trying to access in now and coming up with this messageClick image for larger version.

    I have restarted my system, I have reinstalled the RDPWrap file, checked the Firewall settings...nothing works.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    That is because Windows Home does not have the capabilities. Use TeamViewer, which is a lot more secure.

    That's strange because last week I was able to remote into it just fine.

    RDP has been getting downgraded for a while by Microsoft. Just use Teamviewer and you will find it to be easier to use, especially with being very secure and multi-platform capable.

    RDP on home machines has been an issue going back to when Microsoft introduced it to the Home platform.
