Amazon WorkSpaces Web Access is now available for WorkSpaces running Windows 10, previously available only for Windows 7. You can access your Windows 10 WorkSpaces via Chrome or Firefox web browsers running on Windows, Mac OS, Linux, or Chrome OS. With Web Access, you don't have to download or install anything, and you can securely access your WorkSpace from a public computer without leaving any private or cached data behind.

It's easy to enable WorkSpaces Web Access. First, if you have an existing WorkSpace with Windows 10, you should reboot it. Then your WorkSpaces admin needs to enable Web Access from the AWS Console in the WorkSpaces Directory Details – Access Control Options section. Once these steps are complete, to access your WorkSpace through a browser, simply visit the Amazon WorkSpaces Web Access page using a supported browser and enter your WorkSpaces registration code and then login to the WorkSpace with your username and password.  

Amazon WorkSpaces is a managed, secure cloud desktop service. You can use Amazon WorkSpaces to provision either Windows or Linux desktops in just a few minutes and quickly scale to provide thousands of desktops to workers across the globe. With Amazon WorkSpaces, your users get a fast, responsive desktop of their choice that they can access anywhere, anytime, from any supported device.
