Hello everyone, I am happy to join you on the forum!
I was wondering if I can use rdesktop with Windows? Can you tell me how to do it?

I'm not sure what you have in mind ...?
Do you have more details?

As far as I know since the end of 2019, the rdesktop client project is searching for new maintainers. FreeRDP is a fork of rdesktop. The app became the standard RDP client on systems where no native Microsoft client is available.
But if you still want to figure it out, look here https://www.helpwire.app/blog/rdesktop-linux/

So you're looking for a RDP client that runs under Linux, so you can access a Windows PC?
rDesktop looks pretty dead indeed.
I haven't had a need for it, but FreeRDP does look like a good option.
Remmina seems a great option as well, and seems to support more protocols.
I'm actually surprised how limited the selection is under Linux. 😣
XRDP is said to have a client as well for RDP, but for me I always get confused on their website (since it is mostly a server application).
Having said that, if I understood your question correctly, I'd just try Remmina and FreeRDP, and see how well it works for your purposes.
