  10. Begin using the software applications.  
  11. Save any of your work to your Microsoft OneDrive account or your personal computer. (Do not save them to the virtual desktop.)
  12. Upon completion of your computer lab session, close out of the environment. 
    • Click your name in the upper right corner of the screen
    • Choose Sign Out from the drop down.  

11. If any extra help is required, click the ellipse (  . . . )  icon on the far right side of the remote desktop title bar. Choose Help from the drop-down menu. Help for the application will load in an Internet browser window.
