Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When I try to connect using chrome, the desktop does not start. What should I do?
A: You can reset your Chrome browser settings to see if this fixes the problem. If the problem persists, try using a different browser (i.e. Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, etc.)

Q: Can I login to my desktop using a mobile device?
A: Yes, you can use any mobile device on which you can install the Citrix Receiver app.

Q: Why are my icons different than the icons in my classroom?
A: When you are logging in from a remote location, you are logging into the virtual desktop system. This system is separate from the Dell computer that is in your classroom. It only gives you access to a default set of icons. If you would like to have the same icons as your classroom computer, you will have to recreate them on the virtual desktop system.

Q: After I log in to my virtual desktop, how long will my session last?
A: Your session will stay connected as long as you are working. You will be disconnected and the system will log you off if the session is idle for three hours.
