    Howdy,

    I need to set up my Win7 desktop so I can access it (and my home cloud) from the road with my Win7 Laptop. Should be pretty simple...except, the Remote Access Functions DO NOT APPEAR on the [System Properties] pop-up on the [Remote] Tab

    See pic attached..

    Cannot fill in the form, if the form ain't there.

    Heeeep, please. ScreenHunter_140 Aug. 17 13.05.jpg ScreenHunter_140 Aug. 17 13.05.jpg

    Windows 7 Home Premium is installed on that computer, so that's why you are unable to connect to it via Remote Desktop.

    Because the Remote Access Buttons do not appear on the Remote Settings pop-up. Please see originally posted pic to see. It is hard to follow the instructions when the screen is blank where the set-up help says there are controls. see pic, please. This is also the case on the laptop.

    AH. I see now. If you had said that "your version cannot do it", then it might have been clearer for me. But nevertheless, thank you very much for your reply.

    What options would you suggest to solve this for me?

    You're very welcome. I'm glad you now understand what I was saying. :)

    As for my suggestions, you have two basic routes:
    1. Upgrade to Windows 7 Professional.
    2. Use 3rd party software to perform the same function.
    If I were in your position I would opt for option 2, as there will likely be a cheaper or even free solution. I am personally a fan of TeamViewer which is free for home users.

    Shooter, Thanks for the help and direction. I'll take a look at TeamViewer.

    Appreciate the assistance.
