Question by KzX: I have a laptop and a desktop. Is it possible to use the Windows remote desktop software to install and access?
I have a laptop and a desktop. The desktop is running Windows XP professional while the laptop is running Windows Vista Ultimate Edition. Is it possible to use the Windows remote desktop software that is built into Windows to install and access files. I have some things on the desktop and so far connecting is not a problem. But what if I wanted to copy a file to my flash drive so I can take it with me? I ask because if I try to use My Computer, it takes me to the drives that are plugged in the remote computer and not the drives on my laptop. Accessing the files is cool but if I can’t copy the files with me, there really isn’t a big benefit apart from me showing off to friends. Does anyone have any ideas about how to get this to work? Similar problem with trying to use my laptop to remotely access files and burn a cd as well.
