In this manual, we will show you how to access your Cloud Windows server from any computer using the Remote Desktop Connection application.

¿What is Remote Desktop Connection?

Remote Desktop Connection is a feature provided by Microsoft on Windows computers that allows users to control and access a Windows computer remotely from another device.
