In Windows Explorer you can easily search for files.
The available programs can be found in the Start menu (bottom left).

Click on "Start" → "Windows Accessories" → "Control Panel". Here various system settings can be changed.

For more detailed information concerning passwords see: http://www.bmd.com/asp-info.html
You can also lock the desktop in this tab.
On your desktop you can find the icon "Printer":
Here you can check whether all required printers are available and whether the standard printer is set correctly. If you want to print on a local printer, access the 2X Parallels Client and then choose the printer "printer_name_by_2X".
In case you want to set a new Windows default printer, just right-click on the desired printer and → "Set as default printer"
Once you no longer work on the server, close all the programs. To log out of the new BMD ASP Cloud, simply click on the user icon in the Start menu.
Here you can turn off the connection as well.
If you end a session with "X", you will not be logged out of the server, just disconnect from it. All programs remain open on the server. This state is going to last for 3 hours. Then the server logs off the session on its own. These 3 hours will be charged as regular working time (if they are charged according to usage time)! Therefore, you should always log out correctly when ending a session.
In case the connection to the server is unintentionally interrupted (for example due to an issue with your Internet line), the session on the server is also changed to the state of "disconnected". You have 3 hours to rebuild the connection. Once these 3 hours have expired, the session and the programs are terminated. The terminal server is available 24 hours, 7 days a week. In case any maintenance work is being performed, oen day before maintenance you will get a notification when logging into the server. Maintenance work is generally done outside of normal working hours, usually after 7 p.m.
Should there be any problems/errors please contact firstname.lastname@example.org via e-mail. Your request will then be processed as quickly as possible. During regular working hours, problems/errors can also be reported to the technical hotline.
At the terminal server you have the possibility to ask a BMD employee for assistance with any technical problems. If you select remote assistance, the following message appears on your screen:
Answer with "Yes". The BMD employee is now able to see your current screen and can assist you better.
If you cannot close a program properly, you can close it in the Start menu under "process termination".
If a program can still not be closed, please contact: BMD Technik.
