About the Windows 7 Desktop in IUanyWare

In IUanyWare, the Windows 7 Desktop allows you to use that familiar view on any device, and launch multiple IUanyWare applications side by side on a laptop/desktop. You may already be familiar with it if you've used a thin client in a Student Technology Center (STC) computer lab.

The Windows 7 Desktop resolution defaults to 1024x768, but will scale to the size of your display for easy readability; on a tablet or smartphone, it will run full-screen. Some devices will allow you to resize your text and icons.

The Windows 7 Desktop is configured with the most popular personal productivity applications; to view them, from the Start menu, select All Programs. If you do not see the application you want, log in at https://iuanyware.iu.edu, click APPS, and launch the app you wish to use.

To launch the Windows 7 Desktop:

  • From your Windows or Mac computer, log in at https://iuanyware.iu.edu, and select DESKTOPS at the top. Select the launcher appropriate for your location (i.e., IUB, IUPUI, Regional).
  • From your mobile device, follow the instructions for your device. When selecting applications to add to your storefront, look for Desktop to view your options.
Important:
All permanent file storage is via Cloud Storage. To access your Cloud Storage from the Windows 7 Desktop, open the Start menu and select Computer. When you log off, any files left on the Windows 7 Desktop or in personal folders created when you opened your session will be lost.
