Remote Taskbar and Floating Panel

Administrator tools on the server

With the AdminTool, the Administrator can easily decide what will be the default Remote Desktop theme the user will see when opening a session.
On the Applications tab, click on the „Customize Taskbar“ tile :

  • Only the Administrator can chose the themes for his users.
  • He can chose to display the maximize applications in full screen or not to overlap the TSplus taskbar as well as the silver or blue taskbars.
  • Systray icons can also be hidden by ticking the hide systray icons box.

By editing the users menu, the Administrator can add/suppress applications and functionalities. Customization of the users menu is easy.
The content of the users menu (located in Program Files/TSplus/UserDesktop/mainmenu.mnu) is modifiable by the administrator using Notepad:

You can also customize the Floating/Application Panel:

These various options can allow you to customize the end user’s experience.

Here are the different floating panel display options, where you can set your preferred color for the background and for the text, with or without slider, with or without your logo, with or without the minimize/close buttons, display only icons…and also your suggested Logoff icon! :

The Application Panel Preference gives you the possibility to publish only the assigned applications, or the user desktop folder content or a specific folder of your choice.

You can also choose to personalize the Floating/Application Panel style with a pop-up style or a Windows style.

Here is the application panel in small size, with the pop-up style:

Seamless connection program

In the Admin Tool, on the server or on the applications tile, the administrator can select 3 different styles of Remote Desktop TSplus Taskbar.
The TSplus Taskbar is extremely useful when a session is run with the Seamless TSplus connection program.
The user can launch remote applications with one click on the TSplus taskbar and still have the full local Desktop available.

You can also activate the mini drop-down list of applications or floating panel (very much appreciated by TSplus users).

Thin-client or any RDP based connection program

The administrator can select 4 different styles of full screen Remote Desktop. The standard Microsoft Remote Desktop can also be used if preferred.

Because these TSplus Desktops are full screen desktops, the user’s display is entirely filled when a session is opened from dedicated thin-clients, any RDP based client, or accessed from a web page or TSplus Remote Desktop clients.

There are benefits over a standard Remote Desktop. It enhances the server security (no START button neither full control of the Desktop).
The Administrator can also customize the desktop background by replacing it with your corporate logo.

Standard Microsoft Remote Desktop
