Add a new user to Windows with remote access

add new rdp user

In this tutorial you will learn how to add a new user to your RDP or Windows VPS and assign it the remote desktop access. To do this you will need to have administrator access of your Windows VPS or RDP which is enabled by default on all of AMinServe services.

Step 1: Open CMD (command run) from start menu. You can open start menu and start typing “cmd”, just like the below screenshot.

Open CMD


Step 2: Type this two line command in the CMD window:

net user user1 password1 /add
net LOCALGROUP “Remote Desktop Users” user1 /ADD

Replace user1 and password1 with your desired username and password for the new user. In our example we chose user1 with “deiDKwoM23@w” as password.
