The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will be a practical operating system. Microsoft is working at full speed to perfect this OS version and get it ready for its the official release scheduled to take place in September.

The latest Windows 10 builds have been very rich in new features, revealing many upcoming improvements. The Redmond giant is planning to revamp Windows 10 completely, adding a new smoother UI and better organizing menus. This will include the overhaul of the Settings page for a more intuitive and practical manner. One such practical change is the presence of the Remote Desktop feature on the Settings page.

Enable Remote Desktop from the Settings page

To access and customize this feature, go to Settings > System > Remote Desktop. Microsoft added Remote Desktop to Settings so that users can establish a remote connection much quicker.

As part of our ongoing effort to converge Settings and Control Panel, you can now enable Remote Desktop and configure related settings from Settings > System > Remote Desktop!  We’ve improved this page from its counterpart in Control Panel to help you more easily establish a remote connection to your PC from a Remote Desktop client application.

On the new Remote Desktop settings page, you can find associated settings like sleep (“Keep my PC awake for connections when it is plugged in”) and PC discoverability to detect if your PC is remotely accessible.

Hopefully, the Remote Desktop feature won’t be affected by any issues in the Fall Creators Update. As a quick reminder, many Creators Update users reported that the OS sometimes disables remote desktop connections.
