The interactive experience is similar to what you would be getting if using your local browsers:
- To type, click the desired field and start typing. You can type in any language that your workstation supports.
To view the context menu, right-click.
- Use familiar keyboard shortcuts, such as CTRL+A to select all text or CTRL+C and CTRL+V to cut and paste text, or other combinations supported by the OS.
- Use your mouse wheel to scroll.
- Use the developer tools of your session browser, usually by pressing the F12 key. The session catches all keyboard activity. To use the developer tools of your workstation browser, click the address bar and then press F12, or select it using the menu in your workstation browser.
- To take a screenshot, use your workstation snipping tool or any other graphic tool of your choice.
- To close a session, click the X on the session tab.
