Thanks Paul, I'm getting there ... the Cloud is all new to me.
It's not as seamless as running a machine locallyfirlandsfarm wrote: ↑Thu Jun 02, 2022 7:59 amI think I have got to the bottom of it and decided to try the basic Lightsail service. It also seems I should open a Root account and an Iam account. I understand the principle of using the two accounts, the same as Windows recommends. Just wondering if I can assign no control privileges to an Iam account i.e. the person can log in, access their files and run apps. but nothing more ... they would have no authority to change anything whatsoever (I have my reasons! ).
When accessing files and apps within the service and performing an activity (say excel and entering a value into a cell in a spreadsheet from the PC keyboard at home to seeing the result on the screen at home) is it noticeably slower compared with having everything on the home computer as now?
