Now that the snowy weather is upon us, you may have the opportunity to work from home. Remote desktop allows you to access your work PC from your home computer so that you can have access to all of the software you need to do your job.
A bit of forward planning is required though – you will need to set up your work PC to receive a remote desktop connection and also do a bit of setup on your home PC. The setup of the work PC requires you to be logged on at work, so can’t be undertaken when you are already snowed in.
Take a few moments now to set yourself up and save yourself a bit of hassle later.
