Use the RDP mode to run the native Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection client from within Remote Utilities and connect to a remote computer via the RDP protocol.
If the remote PC isn't directly accessible by its IP address, you can use the Internet ID connection as transport for RDP connection. Learn more about RDP-over-ID.
Turn on Remote Desktop
- On the remote computer, open Windows Settings➝System➝Remote Desktop.
- Click the Enable Remote Desktop slider:

You only need to enable Remote Desktop if you use the RDP connection mode. For Remote Utilities own connection modes (such as Full Control, File Transfer etc.) it isn't necessary to enable Remote Desktop.
