Add user to login to an AWS EC2 instance


Im a newb to AWS, so please go easy on me. We currently just spun up a custom Windows 10 instance in AWS. I was able to login via RDP successfully, but I’d like to create a new user within the instance so they can login with a different user account using RDP. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.


Okay, After your response to my first, I think I see what you are asking. Plase watch this video:

Download the RDP. Save it. You can then Edit the .rdp and enter the user name and password you created in Windows.

You can create users in the User Management Console in Windows. Ensure they have the rights needed (Remote Desktop User, Administrator, etc).
