Remote Desktop with your iphone on Windows 10 Home

My laptop is normally in my living room, plugged in because the battery does not last long.  My printers are in my bedroom/office/craft room.  I scan a lot of patterns and print a lot of things, so I am always going back and forth from the living room to the bedroom.  I wanted a way to remotely control my computer with my iphone so that I didn't have to keep going back and forth.
First I googled it and found out that I have to have Windows 10 PRO instead of HOME.  I was about to pay the $99 to upgrade my Windows to Pro.  I even asked the Dell chat representative if there was another way to remotely access my computer with my phone.  After a half hour of searching, he said there was no way.  So I googled it again and found TEAM VIEWER!  It is completely free (unless you use it commercially)!  I downloaded it onto my computer and onto my phone and voila!  I can now be in the bedroom scanning things with my phone instead of going back and forth.  It is so nice!  And it's easy!  I am so glad I didn't pay the $99 to upgrade.
