Let us say an individual today needs access to an additional Windows 10 PC for various requirement and he does not want to invest further for the extra hardware. He already has access to his own Windows 10 PC.
Is there any solution or subscription service available today such as creating a Windows 10 Desktop Account on Cloud which he can log on to using either remote connection or using Browser on his Windows 10 PC and can then carry on with his activities. The subscription service should be able to give him the option of RAM or storage space required and must be running on Windows 10 (Home/Pro but not Server).
Does anyone know of such a service and can help regarding this?

Hi @iko22 ,

There is a subtle difference. It takes "the" desktop to the cloud more suited for enterprises and SMBs, whereas I want to have "a" desktop in the cloud.
Moreover, I have a Windows 10 Home and the link applies to Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise, or Education device.

The alternative would be Windows Virtual Desktop but, if you follow the link, you can see it requires Windows Enterprise Editions, and takes a lot of setup.

For the simplest set-up, If you just wanted to make some files available on the Cloud, you could consider a Cloud-based NAS storage device.

Otherwise, I would consider a "different" Cloud-based Operating System (free or paid). Examples of such Operating Systems can be found here: The 15 Best Cloud OS to Use in 2020: The Experts' Recommendation | UbuntuPIT

Hi @iko22 ,

Thanks for your reply. Actually, I need a Windows 10 OS only either in cloud or a remote desktop via a subscription service which I can login from my personal Windows 10 Home PC for my day-to-day computing needs.
I am quite sure there are other like people who have requirement of an additional Windows 10 PC would not mind a subscription service rather than paying for the additional hardware.
