Administer your AWS account
The Console facilitates cloud management for all aspects of your AWS account, including monitoring your monthly spending by service, managing security credentials, or even setting up new IAM Users.
Finding Services in the AWS Console
There are several ways for you to locate and navigate to the services you need. On Console Home, you can utilize the search functionality,
select services from the Recently visited services section, or expand the All services section to browse through the list of all
the services offered by AWS.
At any time, you can also select the Services menu in the top level navigation bar, which includes the search functionality and the list of all services, either grouped, or arranged alphabetically.
Learn More About AWS
The AWS Console Home page features various types of resources to help you learn about the services and features AWS has to offer, and get started with building your solutions faster.
The "Build a solution" section features various simple automated wizards and workflows that enable you to create the resources you need for the solution you are seeking.
The "Learn to build" section will direct you to various aggregated learning and training resources organized by solution type and use case. These resources include tutorials, videos, self-paced labs, and project guides, and documentation.
Pin Service Shortcuts
Personalize your AWS Console experience by creating shortcuts to the services you visit most often. Clicking the pin icon in the global navigation bar (top level toolbar) will allow you to drag and drop service links onto the toolbar to create your shortcuts.
With Resource Groups, you can view collections of resources that share common tags. Streamline your use of the console by creating a resource group for each application, service, or collection of related resources that you work with regularly.
Quickly navigate to each saved resource group using the “AWS” menu. Resource Groups are specific to each identity, so each user in an account can create unique Resource Groups for frequently accessed resources and common tasks. Users can also use a URL to share Resource Group definitions with others in the same account.
Use the Tag Editor to easily manage tags for all resource types that support tags in any region. Apply tag keys and values to multiple resources at once. The Tag Editor supports global tag search and bulk editing, so it is easy to find all resources with a particular tag or make tag changes across multiple resources with just a few clicks.
Manage AWS Resources from your Mobile Device
With the AWS Console mobile app, you can quickly and easily view your existing resources, including CloudWatch alarms, and perform operational tasks from your mobile device. Download our mobile app from Amazon Appstore, Google Play, or iTunes.
