The Web Desktop login dialog

In the Web Desktop login dialog, enter your username and password. If memory selection is enabled, you can also set the amount of memory allocated to the client from the Memory dropdown.

Stopping the Web Desktop

When you want to exit the Web Desktop, it is recommended that you sign out with the door icon in the bottom left of the window. This immediately frees up resources used on the server.

If you close either the tab or your browser, you keep resources allocated to the Web Desktop for up to 5 minutes, which may prevent further logins.
