It's found in the Terminal Service Manager - you right click on the session and the shadow option is there.

I dont have terminal service manager installed in my system. Is there any command associated with MSTSC for shadowing?

the terminal service manager should be installed on the server ... you can only shadow from the server directly, not from a workstation. ...You "can" do it from a workstation, BUT, you need to RDP to the server first to use the Terminal Services Manager
