After this, all you need to do is turn on your PS4, connect a controller to the computer with a cable and hit Start on the PS4 Remote Play app. You will be prompted to sign in, do that and you are good to go.

You can also set up your PS4 to allow PS4 PC Remote Play even in rest mode by following these instructions:
