RemoteApp (RDSH)

Found at: i.ycp.edu/remoteapp

This is the fastest and simplest way for YCP members to remotely access applications used at YCP and in your classes.

Note: If you don't see your needed software, or if you must access a specific campus computer, then try the remote desktop option instead.

Included applications

  • IBM SPSS Statistics 24

  • PTC Mathcad Prime 5.0.0.0

  • Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

  • Adobe Illustrator 2021

  • Adobe Photoshop 2021


Access an application or software

If you're on a Mac, do this first

  • From the App store application on your Mac, find and install Microsoft Remote Desktop.

    • Tip: If you've already downloaded it previously, then you shouldn't have to again.

Note: RemoteApp may not work on some older versions of macOS. In that case, either update your Mac or use remote desktop instead.


Save your file

When you save your work, you will download the file to your computer. We recommend that you upload that file to Google Drive, so that you can access and download it later, from anywhere.

Close the app when you're done

Once you're finished, close the application window with the X in the upper right.

Note: In some cases, we have a limited number of application licenses. So, if you forget to close the window, someone else may not be able to sign in.
