Remote Desktop Connection is missing from Windows 7
How to access Remote Desktop Connection in Windows 7
- Click the Start button
- Run mstsc.exe
All flavours of Windows 7 (home, professional, ultimate) have the remote desktop client. However not all flavours of Windows 7 can be the host/server - that is the one being controlled.
If you don't have remote desktop connection
The alternative is simply to use TeamViewer free edition. It is wonderful and even supports Linux, Mac and Windows, and you can mix the operating system for the client & server. That means you can control a Windows machine from Mac, or a Linux box from Windows !
