How to Create a Hyper-V Virtual Machine Connection shortcut in Windows 10

The Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise, and Education editions include the Hyper-V virtualization technology. Hyper-V enables running virtualized computer systems on top of a physical host. These virtualized systems can be used and managed just as if they were physical computer systems, however they exist in virtualized and isolated environment. Special software called a hypervisor manages access between the virtual systems and the physical hardware resources. Virtualization enables quick deployment of computer systems, a way to quickly restore systems to a previously known good state, and the ability to migrate systems between physical hosts.

You can use Virtual Machine Connection to connect to a Hyper-V virtual machine (guest) on a host server (ex: your PC). The hosts and virtual machines that are available in Hyper-V Manager are the same ones available in Virtual Machine Connection.
