Cannot connect with RDP to my laptop with my Microsoft account

Fredrik Kjemperud Olsen 0 Reputation points


I am having troubles logging into my Windows 11 Pro laptop with RDP.

On the laptop, I am set up and logged in with what seems to be my email's Office 365 account. This is the one Administrator user I have on the laptop, and I would strongly prefer to be able to log in with this user via RDP.
However when trying to use this email as user name when logging in with RDP, the password does not work.
The password does work locally on the laptop, in addition to Windows Hello PIN.

I have tried adding MicrosoftAccounts\ or AzureAD\ in front of the email, but this does not change the error message.

Kind regards,
