Hi, and thank you for asking your question.

The tools that Windows provides for setting up a remote connection between PCs are too complicated for a normal user to use; hence, I would suggest using a free third-party remote tool, TeamViewer, to set up the remote connection instead.

You may download TeamViewer (on both PCs) using the following link:

Install it on both of the computers, and then open it up. You will be provided with an ID and password ***** use, by the tool; please make a note of the same on the computer that you want to connect TO, and then enter the same ID and password ***** the TeamViewer tool, on the computer that you want to connect FROM. Click Connect, and you will be able to share each other's screens thereafter.

Please note you will need to keep the TeamViewer tool running on both of the computers to set up the remote connection.

If you need further assistance with this issue, please reply back using the box below. If you could kindly take a moment to submit a positive rating at the top of this page, that would be much appreciated. Thank you :)
