Cannot find Remote Desktop Connection too for Qwiklabs

I followed the diredctions for Qwiklabs 

  1. Open Remote Desktop Connection by clicking the Start button. In the search box, type Remote Desktop Connection, and then, in the list of results, click Remote Desktop Connection.

  2. Enter the external IP address of the instance you want to connect to in the Computer field. Find the external IP address for your instance from the Connection Details Panel on the left side. Click on connect.

But when I go to the start menu in windows 10 and type Remote Desktop Connection all I get are Developer settings for Remote Desktop. How do I download or find the RDP tool for Qwiklabs if it won’t show in the start search query?

Try key combination Windows + R  on your keyboard (should open a “Run Command” box) and then type mstsc.exe and hit Enter key (or click Run).

If it doesn’t run the app, it may mean that the Remote Desktop Connection client is most probably not installed in your workstation, or its use is restricted.
