first go to and find your modem and setup forwarding ports if you want to access away from home outside of your network. Within your network or home, just use RDP, make sure you have remote desktop enable(use control panel or right click computer and select properties then choose remote settings), type in the computer name or ip on the network, found by using ipconfig in command prompt. WIll be something like 192.168.1.***. enter that with(if a password is need for user) the computer password(what you login with) and there you go.
