How To Add local Terminal Server User

Below are the steps required to create a new user account within Windows Server 2016 and Make sure that the user is a member of the Remote Desktop Users Windows group.

      While Windows Server 2016 offers some new interface options and menus that can be used to add or manage user accounts, it also includes the same Local Users and Groups menu that Server 2008 R2, 2012, and Windows 7 featured. The only difference is in how that menu is accessed. We'll be using the classic Local Users and Groups menu in this guide, as it will likely be familiar to anyone who has used previous Windows operating systems.

1. Right click the Start Menu and choose Computer Management. 

2. In the Computer Management window click on Local Users and Groups and right click the Users folder.  Select New User
.  In pop-up window enter your desired username and password then click create.
NOTE Be sure to give the new user the proper permissions. 

3. Once you create the user, you can then go to the left pane in the window and expand Local Users and Groups, then, click the Groups folder and double click Remote Desktop Users Group.
4. Click Add. Then, in the Select Users window you can enter the name of the session you just created in the given field. Click on Check Names next to it and the name will become underlined as an indication that the user was found and accepted.
