Microsoft may soon add multi-session remote access to Windows 10 Enterprise

Hints appeared last week that Microsoft may be close to offering multi-session remote desktop access to Windows 10 Enterprise as an alternative to, and complement of, Windows Server.

The appearance of “Windows 10 Enterprise for Remote Sessions” as an installation option was noticed by Tero Alhonen, of Svenska Handelsbanken AB, who tweeted screenshots Aug. 1. The find was first reported by ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley two days later.

The new SKU (stock-selling unit) installation option was found in a recent Insider preview for the next Windows 10 feature upgrade, dubbed 1809 in Microsoft’s usual yymm nomenclature. Alhonen discovered the option on the disk image (.iso file format) of build 17713.

Currently, Windows 10 Enterprise (as well as Windows 10 Pro) allow only one remote session connection. The new SKU will handle as many as 10 simultaneous connections.
