Does the desktop actively run on an Azure Windows 10 VM?

Jackson 1 Reputation point

I am trying to run a macro event (an event that uses the mouse and keyboard) on a Windows 10 virtual machine on Azure. Essentially I am going to record a macro with keystrokes and mouse movement and clicks and I want that to run on an Azure Windows virtual machine.

My current issue is that I don't think the actual Windows desktop runs unless I fully remote desktop login into the system. I would like to make a script that runs on startup (no need to RDP to start it) that will automatically run the macro event as if a real user was using that virtual machine. Hope this makes sense, let me know if any of you have experience with this!

If there is a full other solution that I have simply not realized please let me know :)
