Accessing Pi's GUI Desktop
If your Pi is directly connected to a monitor, you can start a graphical session by simply entering:
$ sudo startx
If you want to start a remote graphical session (e.g. access the Pi from another computer), then you will need to do some additional setup. Follow these instructions for Linux and/or Windows.
Alternatively, for Windows you can use your Remote Desktop Connection (RDC). On your Pi, install xrdp.
$ sudo apt-get install xrdp
Then simply access your Pi via RDC.
