There are two processes in which this can be done. Use whichever you like most.

I. For Windows 10 desktop

• Right-click the Start button, and choose System from the menu.

• Click on Remote Settings, and then turn on the ‘Allow remote connection to this computer’ radio-button.

• Now, select the below checkbox if you want only PCs having Windows 7 and higher OS to connect and not Windows XP and Vista.

• Click on OK.

• Open Network and Sharing Center by doing right-click on the Network icon on Taskbar.

• Change the Network to Public from the HomeGroup link > Change Network location > Yes. Do not join the HomeGroup.

• The Network is set to Private.

• Your PC will accept the Remote connections from now.

II. Another way to setup a remote host

• Click on Start > right-click on Computer > Properties

• Next, click on Remote Settings and choose one of the three options under Remote Desktop.

• Choose Select Users, and then Add under Remote Desktop Users.

• Now, under the Group dialog box, do the following: Specify the locations and enter the device’s name to select.

Then, click OK.
