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.

It's even in RT.
Go to the charms screen
Type Remote Desktop.
It should show up.
