Hey JaneStoops, i think what dshrenik is asking about is that how to connect to a remote system from a computer running Windows Vista, Am i right dshrenik ?

If that is what is you want, it is pretty simple task just launch the Remote Desktop Connect utility from your Vista system and then enter the IP address or the Hostname of the remote computer, if the connectivity is proper it will propel you to diaglog where you have to enter your credentials on the remote computer and you will be able to access the remote computer.

My question is much simpler!

I just want to know how I can open the Remote Desktop application.
For example, in WinXP, it's under the Programs-> Accessories menu.

Is your host computer running Windows Vista and you need to access your host computer from other computer? Or, vice versa.

If your host computer is Windows Vista, your Windows Vista shall be of Vista Businees edition or above and Vista Basic and Home Premium version are not capable to be the host computer.

If your Windows Vista acts as a client to connect to other computers running Windows XP Professional, Windows Vista Business, Ultimate and Entreprise edition, or Windows 7 Professional, s, Ultimate and Entreprise edition, download the latest RDC update from the link below.

Or you type remote in the Start menu search box and you will see "Remote Desktop Connection" at the top of the search findings.
