So if you are not on Pro, then the option won't be there. Windows 8 Home does not support Remote Desktop so far as I know.

So basically you dont have a "remote settings" option when you go to "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\System"?

Are you the local administrator? Some features might not be available if you are not an administrator.

I am running Windows 8.1 Pro on a Lenovo ThinkPad and the section is there.

In addition to the suggestion of admin user above, try running System File Checker to see if SFC fixes the issue.

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and run SFC /SCANNOW and allow to complete. Restart and check.

How did you get to V8.1?  Fresh install or upgrade Windows 8?  

Just to be sure, you are certain this is Windows 8 Pro.

Never has and never will support remote desktop incoming only has the client for remote desktop connection, you're right John.
