Desktop Environment

When you log into MyVLab you will be presented with a Windows 2012 R2 desktop, visually similar to Windows 8.1. On the desktop there are icons for all applications available to you. You are free to launch multiple applications as required.

From the Start Menu you also access "this Computer" in order to access your files on MyFiles personal storage or client shared folders.


Any printers installed on your local computer when connecting to MyVLab will be available to print. They should appear in the applications printer list. In addition, a PDF writer called CutePDF is installed in MyVlab. This allows you to print to a PDF in case you want to print your work outside MyVlab.
