Saving on the Remote Desktop

While connected to the server, save files to the Local Hard Disk. Files can then be saved to Box, for access once disconnected from EDTECH-TS2.

Printing on the Remote Desktop

On campus, printing is allowed on the server and the standard fees bound to printing on campus still apply. When you are ready to print, simply select the printer in the location nearest to you.

From off-campus, if you have a printer on your computer you may print directly to your own printer while connected to the server. Details on how this is done are listed above in the “How to connect” section.

The easiest way to print is to save files on a local drive, minimize the remote desktop, and print from your local computer.
