Disable Remote Access In Windows XP


5 of 5

Why Don't I See Remote Desktop?
Don't freak out! Many users may not see Remote Desktop as an option on the Remote tab of their My Computer Properties.

The explanation is simple. Remote Desktop is a feature of Windows XP Professional (and Media Center Edition) and is not available on Windows XP Home.

That is a good thing if you wanted it off anyway. One less thing to worry about disabling. Of course, if you want to use Remote Desktop, you will have to upgrade your version of Windows.
