Can I control Windows 10 from my iPhone?

“I’m spending the weekend in the countryside, and I received an urgent task from my boss. I need to use my office computer (a Windows 10 computer), but I really don’t want to come back as all my family is just got there. Now, all I got around me is my iPhone. So can I control Windows 10 from my iPhone?
