@CalebJares Windows Phone is off topic for SuperUser (as are all smartphones); There is where it would be on topic, if you're still in need of help? – Rowland Shaw Jun 20 '13 at 19:38

You can use the Remote Desktop application to do this, make sure you set up a Remote Desktop Connection on your Windows 8, which you can do by right clicking My Computer (or going to System in the Control Panel) and then go to the Remote Settings tab where you can configure it.

No, there isn't. – Tom Wijsman Oct 21 '12 at 14:49
