Windows (Microsoft Store app)
Open the Microsoft Store app from the Start menu. If it is not listed, type "Store" (without the quotes) after clicking the Start button. Search for "Microsoft Remote Desktop" app and install the app. If it asks you to sign in with a Microsoft account, you can just cancel and it will still install. Your MBU account will not work for this, only a personal Microsoft account associated with a non-MBU email address that you own.
Open the Microsoft Remote Desktop app. Click Add, then select Workspaces from the drop-down menu.
The User Account section will appear. Click the '+' button to add your MBU account, or if you have previously added it, select it from the drop-down menu. Click Save after adding your account.
The remote applications available to you should now display in the Workspaces pane of the Remote Desktop app. If you believe you should have additional applications, please contact the helpdesk.
Windows (Control Panel)
Open the Control Panel from your Start menu. You may need to select "View by: Large icons" to see the "RemoteApp and Desktop Connections" setting. Alternatively, you can search for "RemoteApp and Desktop Connections" in the start menu and it will appear. Once you find it, select "RemoteApp and Desktop Connections."
This window will show current remote app connections on your PC. On the left side of this menu, select "Access RemoteApp and desktops" to add a new connection.
If there is already a connection established and it is not working, you can remove or update the connection with the steps below under Update Connection.
In the User Name field, enter your MBU email address FirstName.LastName@mobap.edu. In the Password field, enter your password. Then select OK. You can choose to have your device remember your credentials by selecting the "Remember me" checkbox, but this is not required.
You will now be returned to this window, confirming you have added remote apps.
You will now be able to access the applications on your Windows 10 PC by going through the Start Menu. They will be listed as Work Resources.
You can now access the web apps on your PC by going through the start menu. They are located in a folder called "Work Resources (RADC)". These apps can also be accessed through the Windows Search bar.
