You need to access your Windows 10 PC, but you’re in one place and it’s in another. Perhaps you’re relaxing comfortably in your living room, iPhone or iPad in hand, but you need to view a file on the Windows 10 PC in your home office. Or maybe you need to access more than one computer at the same time and want to connect to them all from one single device.Tough luck? Not necessarily. Using Microsoft Remote Desktop and an iPhone or iPad, you can view files, open apps and control Windows 10 as if you were physically at your PC.
Microsoft Remote Desktop is a simple and reliable remote control tool that can be run on an iPhone or iPad. With that said, the experience will be faster and smoother on an iPad since the iPhone is a bit too small to function as a remote control gadget.
Setting up Your Remote Desktop Connection
Before you install a remote control app on your Apple device, you need to set up your Windows 10 computer to accept remote connections. To do this, right-click on the Start button. From the popup menu, click on the command for Control Panel. At the Search Control Panel field in the upper-right corner, type the word remote. From the search results, click on the link to “Allow remote access to your computer.”
