    what do you mean with open RDP?
     
    you want to access the FortiGate with RDP? you want to access a system behind the FortiGate with RDP? you want to access outside the FortiGate with RDP?

    you create a virtual IP, which a public IP address on the external side and the IP address of the Windows 10 on the internal side.
     
    use that virtual IP in a firewall policy from external to internal.
     
    you probably only want to allow RDP traffic on the firewall policy
     
    this is assuming that you have a public IP address on the FortiGate. if you haven't that you will have to do the forward on the ISP modem / router towards the FortiGate and then use the virtual IP

    I would recommend using a non-standard port from WAN. EG incoming connection WANIP:103389 Mapped to 3389 in the Virtual IP setup.
    Make sure you have a secure password.
    If you know what IP's you'll connect from, only allow those IP's in your IPv4 policy.
    If you can't do that, consider adding some GEO blocking to filter out other countries.
