Remote Desktop Connection on Windows 8 pro

205 Views
Last Modified: 2017-11-21
I have a client, running Windows 8 Pro who needs to logon to our hosted server.  So far, everyone who has logged onto our server has been running Win10, using the "Remote Desktop Connection".  I'm sure RDC used to be on Windows 8, but I couldn't remember where it was (if it is even installed).  I know there is a version called "Remote Desktop" that can be downloaded from the MS store, but this doesn't have all of the features I need.

Can someone let me know how to run RDC on Windows 8.  Thank you
