I have a windows 8 computer plugged in my tv and it has a microsoft account. (lets say mytv@hotmail.com)

I try to connect remotely from a windows 10 machine.

I cant seem to enter the right user name. I have set up the tv computer to allow remote desktop and it works great with the local user i created, but with it doesn't work with the microsoft account.

The name of the pc plugged into the tv is called TV.

I also added the user into the remote settings.


I tried the users (from my windows 10 machine):

TV\mytv@hotmail.com
TV\mytv
mytv
mytv@hotmail.com
MicrosoftAccount\mytv@hotmail.com

non work

Weird is that it works with the local account. Does anybody know how to do this with a microsoft account?

Cheers

yea it's a pro version.

Like I said, i figured out the answer.

While I am at it. Do you know a way to have the computer that I am controlling not being logged out. I would like to have the computer that is being controlled show exactly what is going on instead of closing the session.
