REMOTE TASKBAR AND FLOATING PANEL

ADMINISTRATOR TOOLS ON THE SERVER

  • With the AdminTool, the Administrator can easily decide what will be the default Remote Desktop theme the user will see when opening a session. On the Applications tab, click on the “Customize Taskbar” tile :

    • With the standard settings, the user can choose a different default theme. The Administrator can restrict users from changing themes.
    • He can chose to display the maximize applications in full screen or not to overlap the TSplus taskbar as well as the silver or blue taskbars.
    • Systray icons can also be hidden by ticking the hide systray icons box.

    By editing the users menu, the Administrator can add/suppress applications and functionalities. Customization of the users menu  is easy. The content of user menus (located in ProgramFiles/TSplus/UserDesktop/mainmenu.mnu) is modifiable by the administrator using Notepad:

You can also customize the Floating/Application Panel:

These various options can allow you to customize the end user’s experience. You can modify the Floating Panel size and chose to not display the logo but your own.

The Application Panel Preference gives you the possibility to publish only the assigned applications, or the user desktop folder content or a specific folder of your choice. You can also chose to personalize the Floating/Application Panel style with a pop-up style or a Windows style.

Here is the floating panel renamed, without logo:

Assign it as an application:

THIN-CLIENT OR ANY RDP BASED CONNECTION PROGRAM

The administrator can select 4 different styles of full screen Remote Desktop. The standard Microsoft Remote Desktop can also be used if preferred. Because these TSplus Desktops are full screen desktops, the user’s display is entirely filled when a session is opened from dedicated thin-clients, any RDP based client, or accessed from a web page or TSplus Remote Desktop clients.

There are benefits over a standard Remote Desktop. It enhances the server security (no START button neither full control of the Desktop). The Administrator can also customize the desktop background by replacing it with your corporate logo.Assign it as an application:

STANDARD MICROSOFT REMOTE DESKTOP

The user has a complete desktop including Start Button and full control of the desktop To assign to complete desktop, just assign the Microsoft Remote Desktop application.
