In a previous article we explained how to connect to your Linux server via SSH on Mac. In today’s article we will provide the easiest way to connect to a Windows Server via RDP on Mac.

Let’s start with the three (3) easy steps you need to do on your Mac to connect via RDP on a Windows server.

Step 1 – Download the Microsoft Remote Desktop application from App Store

Open the Mac App Store either by clicking the blue icon on your Mac’s dock, or by clicking the App Store within the Mac’s Applications folder as shown below.

Once the App Store has loaded on your screen, search for Microsoft Remote Desktop using the top left search bar.

To begin downloading the Remote Desktop application, click the blue GET button. Alternatively, if you have previously downloaded the same application, then you will now see a blue cloud icon which you should click for the download to start. See the screenshot below for reference.
