Connecting to Raspberry Pi Via Windows Remote Desktop Protocol

 So We all should know about the raspberry pi nowadays its pretty much taken the world by storm at being the £25 credit card size computer.
Below is the basic gist for those who don’t know what it involves
For this i used Raspbian Image its pretty good for first time users with this guide im presuming you already have your R-PI setup and connected to the internet.
Making it useable via RDP couldn’t be more simpler than the following code in the SSH Terminal or Raspbian OS Started by: startx
#Sudo apt-get install xrdp
leading to this
So when you start RDP aka mstsc.exe you should get a screen like this
and after you login with your account details
you will then have access to your Raspbian Desktop OS
Thanks for reading and comment below if you find this confusing.
