Using My Desktop

My Desktop is a feature that enables you to log in and display a full-screen desktop application, without displaying your webtop.

My Desktop displays the desktop application configured for you by an SGD Administrator, for example, a Microsoft Windows desktop.

You start My Desktop by clicking the My Desktop link on the SGD web server Welcome page, at http://server.example.com. This link displays the SGD Login page. Once you have logged in, the My Desktop full-screen desktop application is displayed.

An alternative way to start My Desktop is by going to http://server.example.com/sgd/mydesktop.

After starting My Desktop, you can close the browser window.

Note - You cannot suspend or resume your My Desktop application. You must log out of the desktop application as normal.

If you have paused print jobs, a message which enables you to resume printing is displayed in the browser window when you log in.
