About Remote Desktop Web Access

Using Remote Desktop Web Access, you can access programs on a remote computer through Remote Desktop Services. Although the programs are running on a remote computer, RemoteApps programs behave as if they are running on your local computer. For example, a RemoteApps program has its own entry in the taskbar, and you can resize, minimize, or maximize the program window.

Using Remote Desktop Web Access

To use RD Web Access, simply navigate to https://remoteapps.atu.edu by using Chrome, Firefox, Edge or IE 10.

  1. Log into RD Web Access using your tech\OneTech ID and password.
