Quick Setup Guide

Now that you have signed up or been upgraded and received the Setup Instructions email you are ready to setup and personalize your Free Cloud Desktop.

Note: The AWS Free Tier only applies to one running Micro instance per account on qualifying accounts. If you are upgrading or replacing and have an existing Free Cloud Desktop, consider terminating your existing instance, or at least stopping the instance until ready to switch to avoid unnecessary AWS charges.
