Free Online Remote Desktop| Easy way to connect another PC with screen pictures

If you only have one monitor, mouse and keyboard but don’t want to spring for an expensive KVM switch, you can use Remote Desktop. This is a feature built directly into Windows XP Professional. It is perfect for looking at a folding machine or 2nd desktop that you rarely use. I use it frequently when updating my servers through Windows Update.
I have attached screenshots at the end to help you with the settings if you are having trouble.

Task 1. 
To allow remote connections on the computer you want to connect to

  1. Open System by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking System.
  2. Click Remote settings, and then select the one of the three options under “Remote Desktop.” Administrator permission required If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Click Select Users. If you are an administrator on the computer, your current user account will automatically be added to the list of remote users and you can skip the next two steps.
  4. In the Remote Desktop Users dialog box, click Add.
  5. In the Select Users or Groups dialog box, do the following:
    • To specify the search location, click Locations, and then select the location you want to search.
    • In Enter the object names to select, type the name of the user that you want to add, and then click OK.
    The name will be displayed in the list of users in the Remote Desktop Users dialog box.

    Task 2. 
    To start Remote Desktop on the computer you want to work from

    1. Open Remote Desktop Connection by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, and then clicking Remote Desktop Connection.
    2. In Computer, type the name of the computer that you want to connect to, and then click Connect. (You can also type the IP address instead of the computer name if you want.)
