Remote desktop allows you to log on to a computer in a remote location from a local computer.

A remote desktop is a network connection that allows you to log on to a computer at its full capacity from another computer. For example, while in a remote desktop connection you can access all of your saved files and programs from your home computer to your work computer or vice versa. To log on to a remote desktop connection, you must have the host computer log-in credentials and remote desktop must be enabled.
