Using Remote Desktop in IUanyWare, how do I switch between apps?

To switch between applications when running Remote Desktop from IUanyWare, you must modify the default options on the Remote Desktop Connection application before you connect to your remote computer:

  1. If you are currently connected to a remote computer using Remote Desktop Connection, disconnect.
  2. Go to IUanyWare from your local computer.
  3. Click APPS, and search for Remote Desktop Connection.
  4. Click Show Options.
  5. Select the Local Resources tab.
  6. Under "Keyboard", select On this computer from the drop-down menu.
  7. Click Hide Options to return to the previous screen.
  8. Enter the name of the computer, and click Connect.

This change is recorded in your IUanyWare profile, and you won't need to do it again.

To switch between open applications within your Remote Desktop Connection, use the Alt-PageUp and Alt-PageDown keys.
