How to RDP to Google GCP Instance

If you have deployed one of our Google marketplace images and want to RDP to the newly created instance, you’ll first need to set the password to the existing username displayed on the deployment page or create a new user account.


Within the GCP console, navigate to your newly created instance “Compute Engine / VM Instances


On the details page of your instance select “Set Windows Password





A new window will pop up asking for the username you want to set the password for. You can use the provided username displayed on the deployment page if you used one of our images or you can provide a new username to create.




You should now be able to RDP to the instance using the username and password
