Once you have enabled Hyper-V and created a Virtual Machine the next step is to be able to access this VM seamlessly. The way you can achieve this is listed below-

Goto Hyper-V Console and click on Virtual Switch Manager

Virtual Switch Manager
Select the network type as Internal and click Create Virtual Switch. This network switch enables your guest Virtual Machine to communicate with the host machine.

Network Switch
Next run ncpa.cpl in your host machine's run window. Right click the Internal network adapter and click properties. Double click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/Ipv4). Fill values as shown in the below pic

Host IP
Next run ncpa.cpl in your guest virtual machine. Right click the Internal network adapter and click properties. Double click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/Ipv4). Fill values as shown in the below pic

Now is the time to experience the amazing seamless access to your virtual machine. RDP from host machine into your virtual machine by typing the IP Address of your VM. (192.168.2.102).
