How to move RDP to a different port on Windows 10

The following article is a short visual on how to move remote desktop on Windows 10 from the default port 3389 to any other available port.

In Windows 10, go to the left bottom corner where it says: ‘Type here to search’

Type in ‘Regedit’ and Registry Editor run command shows in the search window. Click on it:

Once the registry editor opens, go to its address bar and paste in the following path, then press ENTER:

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-TCP

Then right-click on PortNumber option and select ‘Modify…’

Then select the Decimal base and type in whatever port you’d like instead of the default 3389 port.

Once done, press OK and restart Windows. You’ll be all set and RDP will run on a new port you’ve defined in registries.
