Have a look here, for instance : http://technet.micro...y/bb457106.aspx
From your computer you start the remote desktop. It asks you the remote computer username and password, and you are on the remote computer, with keyboard, mouse and everything.
Before that, the remote computer must enable remote desktop access, grant connect to the user, that's all.

I am actually trying to create a system where my laptop can control the mouse and keyboard of my desktop CPU. If I can make the laptop also work as the monitor for the desktop CPU, that would also be a great thing to do. More importantly, I want a solution where configuration needs to be done only once. I mean to say that I would configure my desktop just one and then when I want to connect to the desktop through the laptop, I would only have to use the laptop, and not the desktop. As far as my knowledge of remote connections is concerned, I will need to confirm the access the the desktop every time from the own component so the desktop. I need to pass through this hurdle.

Nope, that is false.
As far as my knowledge of remote connections is concerned, I will need to confirm the access the the desktop every time from the own component so the desktop. I need to pass through this hurdle.
You configure the desktop only once, granting access to any computer, and to a know user which has a password.
So, you configure it only once on each system in your house, and your laptop can remote desktop to any computer.
This is not the only way to do this, but I love it because it's a standard Microsoft Windows feature, so it's supported on each Windows system.
