    Server 2012 does not come with desktop enabling functions. But it is easy to turn on this function. Just hit windows key and type run then hit enter. Copy and paste this:
    Code:
    dism /online /enable-feature /all /featurename:DesktopExperience

    then hit enter and re-boot and your finish.
    I don't know why it did this but where the smiley is it should be a coln then desktop
