Desktop Recording Inside RDP

I need to record steps on one desktop application and I dont have login access on that software. However, I can access it inside RDP.

How can I record steps without installing UI Path inside VM?
Can I start recording from my local and go inside VM and record steps somehow or only way to do it to install it on the VM itself?

You can automate RDP screen using Hotkeys, Image Automation or Using CV

can you please explain a bit more
which hotkeys?

thank you for your response

Just to understand the problem, Desktop application is inside Remote desktop and I am developing the process in local machine.
I am clicking on record in desktop and then I need to record the steps inside VM connected through RDP. I hope this is making sense.
Please suggest,
