Connect to a Windows Machine with Desktop App


There are a few different options for connecting to your Core machine:

  • Paperspace: desktop app or connect directly from a web browser
  • Third-party tools:: You can also use standard remote desktop tools such as RDP, TeamViewer, VNC, etc.


In this tutorial, we will use the desktop app offered by Paperspace. The app offers the best streaming performance, simple clipboard syncing, etc.

Once you have the app downloaded and installed, you can connect to your remote machine. From the console, you can hover over the machine and click the launch button to connect. Note: You can also connect from the machine details page.

App Menu

Be sure to check out the onscreen menu which includes options for fullscreen, multi-monitor, etc. In addition to the console, you can also use this menu to stop or restart the machine.
