This article provides instructions, for Windows or Macs, on how to connect to the Virtual Windows 7 Desktop.

You are now logged onto a virtual Windows 7 desktop, identical to the same desktop that is on over 150 computers in labs all over campus.

Note: Once you are on one of the virtual desktops all the UW Parkside network drives including your H: drive are now listed when you click on My computer. You can close the virtual desktop the same way you would turn off your own computer.
