Changing Your AccountEdge Hosted Cloud Desktop Password

When your AccountEdge Hosted account is provisioned, you're provided with login credentials for each user. It is recommended that you change your user's passwords once you have successfully logged in to your cloud desktop.

Once you change your password within your cloud desktop, you will also need to change the password used in your Microsoft Remote Desktop client connection to match.

Passwords can be changed for all users by the Administrator user through the Control Panel (right mouse click the Start menu and choose Control Panel and choose Users) or each user can change their own password.

Windows Users

Use the key command Alt+Ctrl+Delete

Mac Users

Use the key command Ctrl+Option+Delete or Fn+Ctrl+Option+Del
