A Remote Desktop allows you to remotely connect your Windows 8 PC to a remote PC. Unlike typical TCP/IP network connections that enable you to do things like instant message, or share files via Windows Explorer, Remote Desktop Connections provide you a full-screen graphical view of the remote computer's display. They also allow you to interact with the remote PC via keyboard, mouse and sometimes touch as if you were using it locally.
