Windows does not have an X client, unlike Unix/Linux. So you cannot simply ssh in. In fact, until about Windows 10, Windows didn't even support ssh itself and PuTTY was an essential.
What Windows does have is Remote Desktop support and VNC. I'm not up to date on VNC on Windows - though I'm pretty sure it's a third-party installed app, but Remote Desktop I think is either part of the core kit or at least the second-tier Microsoft installables.
There are several Linux Remote Desktop clients (Note that unlike X, the server is the remote machine for RDP, not the client). Unfortunately, my favorite Linux rdp app no longer works well with the more secure Windows versions. I think Reminna is the recommended app these days.
Note also that unlike Linux, Windows is fundamentally a single-user OS, so as a rule, to attach a remote client (Windows or Linux) to a Windows machine the GUI desktop gets stolen from the target machine - it cannot be shared between the local Windows user and the remote connection. That's why Citrix exists - true multi-user Windows. But Windows apps have to be designed specifically for Citrix - the normal Windows coding won't automatically adapt.
The secret of how to be miserable is to constantly expect things are going to happen the way that they are "supposed" to happen.
You can have faith, which carries the understanding that you may be disappointed. Then there's being a willfully-blind idiot, which virtually guarantees it.
