Can I open 2 or multiple remote desktop connections?

You can connect to Windows 11/10 computer via Remote Desktop Services. However, if the computer has been connected by another user, you'll get an error message -- Another user is signed in. If you continue, they'll be disconnected... Questions like "Can I open 2 or more RDP sessions on Windows 10?" might occur to you. 

By default, Windows 11/10 only allows one simultaneous incoming RDP connection. That is to say, it's unable to open multiple incoming remote desktop connections on Windows 11/10. You can open two or more RDP connections on Windows Server after installing Remote Desktop services and purchasing an RDS license.
