Please note: Not all apps will be listed on that page. Some apps (such as GMetrix) are only available by first selecting "Windows Desktop" and then opening them from the Apps folder on that desktop.
Students can access all of the software installed on the virtual lab with only a web browser; however, installing and using the dedicated app does have a few benefits. Because this software runs directly on your computer and not within a browser, it can make your local computer's hard drive and USB storage devices available directly from within the virtual lab. This software also makes it easier to move virtual lab app windows around and run more than one virtual lab app at once since they appear directly on your computer screen and not within a browser window.
You can download the Microsoft Remote Desktop from https://aka.ms/rdapps
When logging into Microsoft Remote Desktop, you will need to either click Subscribe with URL or select the Workspace tab and enter the following workspace URL: https://rdweb.wvd.microsoft.com/api/arm/feeddiscovery
Some apps cannot be run directly from the virtual lab web interface or desktop app. For these apps, you will first need to launch the Windows Desktop and then search for the app in the Apps folder on the virtual computer desktop.
If an app you need for class is not available from the Windows Desktop please contact our department for assistance. (contact info below)
