I want to disable local administrator rights for Amazon WorkSpaces users. How can I do that?


You can update the Local Administrator Setting from the Amazon WorkSpaces console to disable administrator rights. For instructions, see Manage local administrator permissions.

Note: When you update the directory details to disable local administrators, the change applies only to newly created WorkSpaces. To apply the change to an existing WorkSpace, rebuild the WorkSpace.

To make changes to a WorkSpace at the operating system level after local administrator rights are removed, connect using a Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) client.
