Visual Studio 13 - Download Source from Version Control

I have a project that I have checked into source control in the Team Foundation Server Microsoft's site.  I would like to work on that project from another computer.  I get on the other computer - go to the Team Explorer and connect to the Web Portal where my source control files are stored.

I have been going round in circles trying to figure how to connect to the site and download the latest version of my code so I can start working on the second computer.

Any help in doing this would be greatly appreciated.  Is it just me or has Microsoft deliberately made their version control system as difficult to understand as possible?

Any help greatly appreciated.

It sounds like you can get connected to the TFS repository so I have to assume you're able to bring up the Source Control Explorer. Once you get to that point just right-click on the TFS project and select "Get Latest Version."
