- Connect to computer feature will be available in Internet Explorer.

You need active x and google chrome does not have active x there are ways around it but easiest option is internet explorer

Just found the fix.. Above is the link to the IE tab extension installer that needs to be installed to the google chrome browser.

Once installed it allows the active x feature which gives the remote capability as in IE
