I was able to access droplet every day via remote desktop, but today I can't

I can still connect to my Droplet with Putty, but I was able to log in to Droplet every day via Remote desktop even though I didn’t change anything. Today I can’t.

When I opened this topic, I closed all my droplets and opened them again, I did my installations again, but today the same thing happened again, I can’t find a solution.

Hello @adorablelightseagreenyacht

As per Bobby’s reply please check if the RDP service is running and that the RDP port is open and the service is listening on it.
