    Does your windows 10 Pro install contain all 19 User Groups or just 11


    I have two installs of win10 Pro. One was a clean install and one was upgraded to Pro from Home in a VM. I found I could not add Remote Desktop users to my upgraded version because groups were missing.

    So take a look under Computer Management --> System Tools -->Local users and Groups --> Groups and report what you find

    Which does it look like? I have one of each

    Windows 10 will create the user groups when it needs them. If it hasn't needed that user group before, it likely won't be there. When it needs it, it will create it. Hyper-V administrators won't be there until you do something that requires virtualization. Remote Desktop Users won't be there until you start the Remote Desktop host service.

    This, is good to know, for now I can't add users to the Remote Desktop users group in my VM.

    My remote desktop is very limited, only I sign in with my Microsoft account and only from within my LAN so I never had to mess with adding any other users to the Remote Desktop group.

    I just don't like running any PC with the Admin account. However, I will admit the windows 10 admin account security does seem improved.

    Well my problems seemed insurmountable, so I did a "reset pc" and now I see 18 groups. I checked these things right after install, so they seem like defaults. Below is my screenshot:

    NavyLCDR do you see in remote desktop, in System Properties --> Remote in the box that says allow connections from pcs with network level authentication, if select users grayed out? It was for me, causing me lots of problems, it is no longer grayed out.

    This is my desktop computer which is running RDP host:

    These are the same computer's user groups. This computer was also a clean install of Windows 7 Pro. I don't know what user groups existed before I enabled RDP hosting, though:

    Select users is enabled, when I click on it I have no users listed and a note that says my Microsoft account login already has remote access.

    Ok, well you really confused me when you posted the screenshot in this thread: Solved How to upgrade and activate Win 10 Home N(unactivated) to Win 10 Pro N - Page 2 - Windows 10 Forums

    Was that image not from your pro install like you implied?
