    Hi,

    Is there any reason to install Hyper-V on a single user system that has 3 logins?  Note: I have

    and use three different logins on the same system.

    Thanks for your help!

    Regards,

  • Sounds like you're asking about remote desktop? Unless you plan to build and deploy some virtual machines then there no need for Hyper-V

  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting in Technet.

    Hyper-V is Microsoft's hardware virtualization product. It lets you create and run a software version of a computer, called a virtual machine. Each virtual machine acts like a complete computer, running an operating system and programs.

    According to your description, RDP(Remote Desktop) is more suitable for you.

    You can refer this article about how to connect to another computer using Remote Desktop Connection.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17463/windows-7-connect-to-another-computer-remote-desktop-connection  

    You can follow this article about how to setup simultaneous Remote login for multiple users. According to your description, you have 3 logins, you can set maximum connections allowed for remote login as 3 or more.

  • The number of local logins is mutually exclusive from installing Hyper-v, and using hyper-v is dependent on you needs. In any of your logins you may install hyper-v, assuming the login has local admin authority to install it, and then you can learn about hyper-v virtual machines. If you have no need for creating and managing virtual machines, then the answer is likely “there is no need to install Hyper-V.” As another responder suggested, if your need is for Remote Desktop connections, then what you may be needing is RDP (mstsc.exe) which I think is available on all versions of windows 10 (Home, Pro, and Pro for Workstations, Enterprise, etc.); RDP is already installed. Search for either “mstsc” or “Remote Desktop” and you should find that; search RDP in Bing or another search tool for how to use it. Hope this helps.
