💻Remote Desktop: logon attempt failed ⛔

Hi 👋

Have you ever tried to setup your Windows’s Remote Desktop functionality and failed with the following error message “logon attempt failed“, knowing that your credentials were correct and that you’re on the same Wi-Fi network with the computer you’re trying to access?

Well, I did.

Most of the solutions you’ll find on other blogs make you edit your Window’s registry, network settings and so on, which in my case was not needed, and it is somehow overkill.

Logging in with a password and my Microsoft account on the computer I wanted to setup Remote Desktop solved the issue.

What I had to do was to go in Settings > Accounts > Sign-in Options, disable Windows Hello PIN and all other sign in options, setup Password sign-in option and then relog on my PC.

That’s it.
