With the Remote Desktop (RDT) connection on your computer, you can easily and quickly manage Windows 10 remotely. You can use another PC, as long as it is connected to the Internet or the same network, or access from your personal computer at home to all the resources available on your network, files and programs on your professional computer, as if you were sitting quietly on your desk. How to do this? We explain it to you in our last hacking of the week of 2017
A tool of choice: manage a computer remotely under Windows 10
To use the Windows 10 Remote Desktop function you must connect to the target computer (Remotecomputer) which must be switched on with an internet or network connection, after what Remote Desktop must be enabled. In addition, for the target computer, you must have network access and authorization to create a connection. For this to be possible, you must be on the target computer’s user list. To be able to establish a connection with another computer, you must also know its name. The firewall must also allow the creation of a Remote Desktop link.

Remote desktop between a Mac and Windows 10
With Windows 10, you can also access the Mac in your home or allow one-time access. In fact, as early as version 10.5 Leopard, OS X already included the possibility of setting up screen sharing. Thus, you can display on your computer the screen of another Mac or a PC running Windows. To do this, you must again enable screen sharing on the target computer. To do this, go to System Settings and then Share. The screenshot then appears in the list at the very top. You then decide to who you authorize access to this PC.
If you want people using other operating systems to be able to access your Mac, enter a VNC password. It is the optimal solution for those who want to use Office on their PC at home, while their office is equipped with Mac, which allows them to access their business data at any time and very easily. For communication between two Macs to take place, the user simply needs to enter his or her usual OS-X user data.
Here again, the configuration is very simple to implement:
- open the Finder
- type Ctrl+K
- enter vnc:// and the IP address of the target computer in the server taskbar
In the System Settings go to Network and you can easily find the IP address of the target computer in the status bar. Screen sharing starts now. Once you have entered the login information, you will be able to see the screen of the target computer in a separate window.
