Following the increase in the number of staff and students working remotely due to the pandemic, we have significantly increased the amount of software available on UniDesk and UniApps.

Change to default save location

Please be aware that the default save location has changed to your OneDrive on UniApps/UniDesk/AdminDesk and open access PCs. Your H: and X: drive are still available to save to but you now need to browse to them - they can be found under 'This PC'.

Please make sure that all files have finished synchronising in OneDrive before leaving or logging out of Windows Virtual Desktop. You may lose work if the OneDrive sync process is not complete. You can find out what the OneDrive icons mean on the Microsoft website.

Locating your desktop files

You shouldn't store any documents on your desktop, but if you have previously, these are now stored in the following locations:

On open access PC's


On UniApps/UniDesk/AdminDesk


Any files you saved in your documents have not been moved and are located in either H:\Documents or H:\dos

Shortcut to your old desktop

For quick access to your old desktop files, you can use the new shortcut on your desktop called 'Old Desktop'.
