remote desktop

By lwknudsen ·
I am trying to use remote destop on my Win XP pro system. My problem is that it doesn't show up under start/programs/accessories/communications. I tried downloading and installing from, but I get a message saying it cannot install because remote desktop is a part of the operating system. Can anyone tell me how to access remoted desktop?

Re: remote desktop

Remote desktop is in the Control Panel -- System - Remote. I hope this helps.

Good luck.

Look in All Programs/Accessories/Communications

Remote desktop server settings can be found under System Properties > Remote. The RDP client is in Accessories > Communication or you can use the Web based client.

Wrong forum

by deepsand In reply to remote desktop

This is a tech. problem, in search of a solution.

It properly belongs in "Technical Q&A," not in "Discussions."

Please re-post there.

Thank you.

It's a common problerm.

by deepsand In reply to Is that

The structure of TR, particularly that button for posting comments to articles, does nothing to guide posters to the correct forum.

This is a problem that has been addressed in several discussions, with no resolution in sight.
TR seems to be reluctant to make the site "more complex."

It seems to me all you are trying to do is increase your post count, but what do I know.

Deepsand is correct about pointing members to the correct section of the TR site.

While this one was borderline, there are WAY too many Questions posted in the Discussion section.

Had you been an ACTIVE member of the discussion section, you would know this.

NOTE: Usually it is OZ who is first to point people to the correct section, so I am not sure how deep beat him in. Not feeling well OZ?

I guess only the high and mighty are allowed to post anything.

I guess TR is not for everone.

I wont bother you guys anymore, I will find another site were new people are welcome.

Silly, me I thought this was for professionals.

And that was professional?

by jdclyde In reply to Wow

What is unprofessional about politely informing someone who is not aware of how things may work the correct way to proceed?

It is assumed that the posted did not know the proper place for posting questions. This is backed up by the fact that it isn't the proper place to post questions. Nothing high and mighty about that. Nothing unprofessional about that. Nothing unwelcoming about that.

If you go back, it was your jumping on this that wasn't professional. You didn't understand WHY this was said, so you started to insult someone who was HELPING someone else.

Not a biggie, as everyone makes mistakes. Even I have, or so I am told.

Step back, reread the posts as they were intended and relax.
