asked on

RDP Access to Windows 10 Home PC?

Have user running Windows 10 Home that needs remote RDP access to her machine.

I have tried to install the STASCORP remote wrapper but it's not listening:

Are there alternatives? Any ideas if this can be done and how?

I like Teamviewer.
There other products as well.
"There is no Remote Desktop in Windows 10 Home. Since it was for home usage, Microsoft removed some features from Windows 10 home like group policy editor gpedit.msc and remote desktop RDP. These features are only available in the Pro and Enterprise editions."
You cannot connect to the computer running Win10Home, however, you can use the computer running Win10Home to connect to another computer which is this case.
True, good point.

Remote Desktop Users Group - the machine is on a workgroup.

Connect to another machine - are you suggesting that you can connect to a Windows 10 computer and then bounce remotely into the Windows 10 Home machine that way?
into the Windows 10 Home
You cannot use Remote Desktop to get "into the Windows 10 Home " - Windows 10 Home (more accurately "Windows 10" with no other designation) does not support incoming connections.
Many thanks for spelling this out.
