3 Ways To Enable Remote Desktop Connection In Windows 8

This is a complete guide about how to enable Remote Desktop Connection in Windows 8. We will discuss 3 different ways to enable the RDC settings in Windows 8.

Remote Desktop Connection is one of the most important components of Windows in a networked world. Remote Desktop Connection or simply RDC enables us to login to Windows remotely with a graphical user interface. RDC enables the users to take control of multiple computers simultaneously by using only one computer.

Remote Desktop Connection is not enabled in Windows 8 by default. We have to enable it manually. If you are using an Active Directory setup in your network, you can easily enable RDC on all computers at once by using Active Directory group policy. For a complete guide on how to manage Remote Desktop Management Server in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2012, you may follow the steps outlined in this blog post.

1- Using Command Line

To turn on Remote Desktop using command line, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to Run (WinKey + R) –> SystemPropertiesRemote
  2. This will open the System Properties window.
    Remote Desktop Connection system properties
  3. Select “Allow remote connections to this computer” under Remote Desktop.

2- Using Windows Registry

The benefit of using Windows Registry hack to enable Remote Desktop Connection is that it can be done remotely. Yes! you can enable RDC remotely using Windows Registry. All you have to do is add a registry key on the remote system.

If you want to enable Remote Desktop Connection on your local computer using Windows Registry, just open the Registry Editor (Run –> regedit) and go to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server

In the right hand pane, change the value of fDenyTSConnections to 0.

If you are uncomfortable working with the Windows Registry, simply download the following registry file and run it.

3- Using Control Panel

This is basically the same as no. 1. We just have to take a visual path through control panel to open the same dialog as we opened before.

  1. Go to Control Panel (WinKey + X + P)
  2. Click on System and Security group and select “Allow remote access” under System.System and Security - Allow Remote Access
  3. This will open the same dialog as in no. 1. You may select “Allow remote connections to this computer” under Remote Desktop to enable Remote Desktop Connection on your Windows 8 computer.

COMING 2019 – COMPUTING CORPUS Active Network Hub (c) Phil Sigin-Lavdanski

Oh, please do not get me wrong. This new section is not about computers, electronics or any engineering stuff, but rather I am currently constructing a new corpus based on Spectrum, the monthly publication from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers USA, from July 2007 to date. Having been a member for over 20 years since 1992, I am always fascinated by some of the terms scientists use when they talk about or envision their new inventions or methodologies. How many of them eventually come into practice? Could there be some insights we could possibly derive, from the linguistics perspective?
