Starting a Virtual Desktop

Last Updated: Jun 09, 2014 11:01AM EDT
Starting the Virtual Desktop

To start the virtual desktop, simply double-click the appropriate desktop icon that is located on your current vKey OS desktop. It will likely be named something such as ThinPC, Windows 7 or Windows 8. Once your virtual desktop has started, it will operate as if you were using your normal desktop.

(Note: While using the virtual desktop, the [Ctrl][Alt] key combination is replaced with the [Win][LeftAlt] key combination. For example [Ctrl][Alt][Del] becomes [Win][LeftAlt][Del].)

Shutting Down the Virtual Desktop

Once you are finished using the virtual desktop, simply shut it down like you would your normal desktop. Click the "Start" button then "Shut Down". If you then wish to also shut down the vKey OS, click the upper left corner on the vKey desktop and select "Shutdown Now".
