How to Remote Desktop into Raspberry Pi from Windows

An alternative to using SSH to access the RPi console from Windows or Linux is to access the RPi desktop.

On your RPi execute the following command:

sudo apt-get install xrdp

When this software which allows remote connections is installed, determine the IP of the RPi by executing

ifconfig

matthew_moisen_raspberrypi_ifconfig

and restart your RPi, either by unplugging and replugging the microusb cable, or by executing the following:

sudo reboot

In Windows, start the Remote Desktop Connection (All Programs>Accessories>Remote Desktop Connection) and enter the IP address, and connect.
