Windows Server instances use password authentication instead of SSH authentication. 

To prevent unauthorized access to new Windows instances, Compute Engine requires that you generate a new Windows password for that instance before you connect to it. 

In the GCP Console:

  1. Go to the VM instances page.

  2. Click the Windows instance where you want to generate a new password.

  3. On the instance details page, click the Set Windows password button.

  4. The username field specifies which Windows user receives the new generated password. If you want to create a new user, specify a new username in this field and Compute Engine will add that user with a new password.

  5. Click Set.

For creating a Custom password refer to : https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/instances/windows/creating-passwords-for-windows-instances
