Remote Desktop Connection

Access your PC remotely with Remote Desktop Connection—watch this video to see how. (0:40)

Ever wished you could access your PC from the road? With Remote Desktop in Windows 7, you can.

Remote Desktop connects two computers over a network or the Internet. Once connected, you'll see the remote computer's desktop as if you were sitting right in front of it, and have access to all its programs and files.

This feature is included with all editions of Windows 7, but you can only connect to computers running the Professional, Ultimate, or Enterprise editions.
