Remote Desktop connection – User account is not authorized to login

Windows 8.1
I have two computers running Windows 10 and 8.1 at my home. I tried to use remote desktop connection from Windows 8.1 to connect to Windows 10. But it asks the credentials of Windows 8.1 to login to other. I couldn't make successful connection even though I'm allowed remote access on both the systems. Here's the error: The connection was denied because the user account is not authorized to login.

    If you are trying to connect from home to your work computer, it may be your home user is not authorized on your company network. Contact your network admin.

    Is file and print sharing turned on, on both machines, and on both machines are you using the proper credentials on each machine?

    "...from Windows 8.1 to connect to Windows 10. But it asks the credentials of Windows 8.1 to login to other."

    If you're going from 8.1 to 10, how do you know that it's asking for the 8.1 credentials? You need to supply credentials for Windows 10 if that's the target system.
