List All Amazon EC2 Instances from All Regions using GUI

If you are developing solutions on Amazon Cloud using AWS services, you might frequently require to get the list of your resources independent from AWS regions. For example, recently I wanted to list my EC2 instances. It is simple to display all EC2 instances in a specific region using EC2 Dashboard but this view provides EC2 instances list only for selected region.

Here is the AWS EC2 Dashboard screen. Please note that I have selected Instances tab from left side menu.

But as an AWS developer or AWS architect, if you want to see all your EC2 instances all over the world defined on various regions, the easiest method is using Tag Editor tool under Resource Groups

On AWS Management Console, you will see Resource Groups on top menu. In Resouce Groups menu, choose Tag Editor tool.

In Resource types filter area, choose EC2 Instances only.
Leave all other input fields empty.
Press Find Resources button to list all EC2 instances created under your AWS account on all AWS Regions.
