    I want to use Remote desktop to use it with my phone but in the Windows 7 Home Premium edition, I dont see the option to do so.
    Googled but only found that I need to upgrade my Windows 7 to professional or Ultimate.
    I read somewhere that there is a Patch or something to make it work on Home Premium but couldnt find anything.
    any help?

    I know there are some websites that do the whole desktop sharing thing, but it's been so many years that I've gotten them all. I'm interesting in finding out about this W7 Home patch for it though.

    What kind of phone? If it's an android phone, you should try the app: PhoneMyPc.
    Install the server (very lightweight) on your PC, install the client on your Phone, and done.

    You probably have to manually enable Port 3389 under "Advanced Settings" as the options to set up Remote Desktop via the GUI's are disabled.

    Personally never tried this as I run ultimate on all my systems.

    I just had a lil playaround with Windows using this as reference, and it seems that it isn't disabled in Home Premium, just dumbed down into "Windows Remote Assistance". "Remote Desktop Connection" also exists, which seems a more robust sharing app, but I've not tried playing around with it yet.

    I'm now going to give PhoneMyPC a go to see how it compares. EDIT: Scratch that, I don't feel like paying £6 for it.
