    I tried to login to the pi via WinSCP, No matter what user I try to use, nothing works, I went into /etc/ssh/sshd_config and changed permitrootlogin to yes, but that does not work either. Nor will user PI work

    once you change the permitrootlogin setting, you need to set a password for the root user. Try sudo passwd root

    I did that, and nothing will work. I even tried to change the password for user PI. Still nothing

    no, its always been there, i just always enable it, when expanding the filesystem, setting the memory split & changing default password, not sure if it’s really needed to be done tho? but i do just incase

    ssh is enabled by default for the “pi” user on the retropie images. unless it’s been disabled should be no need to enable it

    Make sure you are logging in with user “pi” lowercase. the password is also lowercase.
