Configure Windows PC
Note: Windows 10 Home edition does not let you connect over RDP. The Windows machine must be running Pro or Enterprise.
The Windows machine needs to be ready to accept remote access. To enable remote desktop sharing, start Control Panel, select System and Security, select System, and then select Remote settings.
Check the box “Allow Remote Assistance connections to this computer“.
We also need to enable remote desktop connections through the Windows firewall.
Start Control Panel, select System and Security and then Windows Defender Firewall. Select “Allow an app or feature through Windows Defender Firewall“.
Scroll down until you find Remote Desktop. Check the box(es) in the Private and/or Public columns depending on how you are accessing the desktop. Click OK.
