What is the desktop version of Remote Web Access?

When you use a mobile phone to log on to Remote Web Access, the website recognizes that you are using a mobile phone and displays only the Shared folders page. The Home page is not available, and the options that are available on the Home page are not available.

If the browser that you are using supports the desktop website, when you click View desktop version, you have access to the Home page of Remote Web Access. This allows you to use Remote Web Access on your mobile phone in the same way that you use Remote Web Access on your desktop or laptop computer.


If the screen width on your mobile device is wider than 640 pixels, you are automatically directed to the desktop version of the website instead of the mobile version of the website.

To return to the mobile version of Remote Web Access, log off of the website, and then log on again by typing https://<DomainName>/Remote/m in the web browser address bar. When the mobile version of the log in page is displayed, type in your user name and password, and then click the arrow.
