"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.

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.
