I recently reformatted one of my computers and have forgotten to turn on Remote Desktop. Now I am trying to grab some files off that computer, but I have no way of accessing it. I have an administrative account and can access the local network (remote desktop another computer that is on the network), but I can't figure out how too enable remote desktop or administration.
I found this post promising, but since remote administration wasn't on I wasn't able to enable Remote Desktop.
How can I enable Remote Desktop on a Windows 8 computer from another Windows 7 computer on the same local network?
