From here, you can click Show More Settings and then click Security & Authentication in order to change your RDP settings.

There is a good chance that you have some sort of remote desktop software on your computer, be it TeamViewer or Splashtop. These are both very handy pieces of software that allow you to control your desktop computer from another device. Even if you don’t have any third-party software installed on your PC, RDP is still a great way to access an unattended PC.
Your system administrator (or whoever has physical access to the PC) will need to enable RDP before remote access is possible though, so keep that in mind when trying to connect through RDP. When you’re ready to make a connection, just input the local hostname or IP address of the PC. To move around within the remote session, use the WASD keys for movement and the left mouse button for selection; actions such as pressing enter or clicking can be done through your mouse or keyboard as usual.
