You can customize the appearance of Remote Web Workplace, including adding a display name for sign-in, sign-out, and the home page. You can also choose a background image and display your company’s logo.


Remote Web Workplace supports the GIF, PNG, BMP, and JPG image formats. Your custom background image or logo should be approximately 760 pixels wide by 500 pixels tall. Additionally, you can select only from image files that are stored in the \Program Files\Windows Small Business Server\Bin\webapp\Remote\Images folder on the server. If you have custom images that you want to use, copy them to this folder first.
