How to Run the Remote Desktop in MS-DOS
The MS-DOS Command Prompt is a command-line application that runs within the Windows operating system. This utility lets you run programs by typing in their names, instead of using a graphical user interface. If you want to launch the Remote Desktop program from within the MS-DOS utility, you can do so if you know the name of the program and what parameters you need to use when launching it.
Open your Start Menu and click "All Programs" then select the "Accessories" folder.
Look for a program named "Command Prompt" and click it.
Type "mstsc /v:server_name" in the window and press "Enter," "server_name" being the name of the remote computer you are connecting to.
Type in your username and password, then click "OK" to log in to the remote machine.
