Selecting Cloud Desktop as role type allows administrator to launch "light-weight" linux environment. It provides a locked-down Desktop experience with no Start menu. This minimal graphical interface will allow user to access fewer applications.

Map Stations to Cloud Desktop Profile


Once profile is created, stations can be "mapped" or assigned to profile by simply dragging-and-dropping the station icons to the cloud desktop profile. To change the profile configuration (for example, to change the default URL), click on the profile name to open the "Edit Profile" window.

Note: Changes will not take effect until the "Apply" button is clicked.
