Remote desktop in windows 7
Here is a guide on how to enable Remote Desktop in Windows 7. Remote Desktop which in English is called “remote desktop“is not enabled by default in Windows 7, but you can, of course, activate it yourself. Remote desktop function so that you can take over the computer it is enabled on, so that you possibly. can work on your computer from home, or vice versa. For you to make it work over the internet, open port 3389 in your router/firewall. Port 3389 is the port that remote desktop uses to run/communicate over.
1. Start by pressing the start button, and then right-click “Computer“and choose “Features”
2. Now you need to press “Remote connection settings“to the left.
3. Check the box as in the picture below, and your computer is ready to be taken over with Remote Desktop. If you are not an administrator on the computer, press “Select users“and choose your user.
4. Press “Add”
5. Pressurize “Advanced”
6. Now you need to press “Search now”
7. Now select your user from the list and press “OK”. Now your computer is ready to be taken over, with the user you have chosen.
8. Remember that it will not work if you do not open port 3389 in that router/firewall. It’s almost impossible for me to show it, since everyone has different routers/firewalls. But if you search on google, you can often find help with setting up your equipment.
Remember that remote desktop is unfortunately only available in Professional, Business, or Ultimate versions of Windows 7,so the home version does not have this feature.
