vDesk (Virtual Desktop) Information

Puget Sound’s vDesk provides anytime, anywhere access to a wide range of software and tools, including Microsoft Office and discipline-specific applications such as Mathematica and SPSS. Faculty, staff, and students can now access vDesk from Windows or Mac computer as well as iOS , Android Smartphones and tablets. This version of vDesk looks exactly like Windows 10 Desktop. 

You can choose to install the VMware client which will remain installed on your device(s), or use the HTML method which will not remain installed on your device(s). View the .PDF's for information on the installation process for Windows, and Mac O/S.

If you prefer to just start using vDesk without installing onto your personal device, then simply access vDesk by using the HTML method. Read the .PDF titled: VMware Horizon HTML Access to get started.
