Open or Switch to Another App (in Apps on Demand)

This article applies to: Apps on Demand


In the AppStream navigation bar, click Launch app (the four-squares icon). The list of applications available in your stream will be displayed. Click the desired app to launch it.

Any currently-running apps will remain open. Click Switch windows (the overlapping rectangles icon in the navigation bar) view all open apps. Click an app's window to make it active.

Disconnected sessions (closing the web browser) and idle sessions (no keyboard / mouse activity) will stay active for 60 minutes and then be automatically logged off. If you fail to reconnect or actively use your session before the 60-minute timeout ends, all your unsaved work will be lost and you will need to start over. Be sure to save your work often and always copy your work from temporary storage to Google Drive or OneDrive before leaving your computer or doing other things on your computer.
