Remote Desktop not displayed on my My Computer Properties

On a PC running Windows 7 at work, I want to allow remote connections to the PC.

I went to the web page and expanded the article about the To allow  remote connections on the computer you want to connect to  section.  This section shows the "System Properties" window and "Remote" tab.  In such a window, the upper portion "Remote Assistance" is displayed both on my PC and in the article.  But the lower portion "Remote Desktop" is not displayed on my PC.  Consequently all subsequent instructions to allow remote connections to the PC can't be followed.

In order to run Remote Desktop, you need any of the following Version of Windows.

Windows XP Professional,

Windows Vista Professional or Windows Vista Ultimate,

Windows 7 Professional or Windows 7 Ultimate,

So, Windows XP Home, Windows Vista and Windows 7 Home premium, home, basic will not allow Remote Desktop.

Remote assistance is available in all windows OP,s.
