    I am trying to setup Remote Desktop, on my Surface2. All documentation, that I have seen, shows that you go to Control Panel/System Properties/Remote. There, you should see two sections, one where you turn on Remote Assistance and, below that, one for Remote Desktop.

    I do not see the Remote Desktop portion. What am I doing wrong?

    You can only use the S2 to connect to another computer running remote desktop service. The app called 'Remote desktop' and its in the app screen, then you need to type the name and credentials of the computer you want to connect to. There is a desktop one and a modern one you can download from the store.

    I think I will just use Splashtop.
