    Hello,

    Windows Home editions were designed primarily for personal use and do not natively support functioning as an RDP server. This capability is a feature exclusive to the Pro, Enterprise, and Education editions of Windows.

    Setting up RDP on a Home version usually means using tricky solutions or programs from other companies. These might not be safe, could make your computer less reliable, and aren't backed by Microsoft. The RDP features in Professional have strong safeguards, like extra login checks and data encryption, to keep your information secure while it's being sent.
