Where is it hidden in Windows 8.1 pro. I know it should be included as part of the standard OS.

It is there.  Look in %windir%\system32\mstsc.exe and that is it. I hope you can find it. Use Win + R on the desktop to locate it.

I use it all the time and pasted the shortcut to it onto my Windows 8.1 desktop.
