All managed PCs across the University will be upgraded to Windows 10 by September 2017, including teaching rooms and lab spaces.
Alongside the new operating system, specialist software will be accessed using a new application portal called AppsAnywhere. This portal replaces the current application launcher in the menu shortcuts and can be accessed from Message of the Day, the start menu or the desktop. All PCs will also be upgraded to Microsoft Office 2016.
We have been running a pilot on some of the University's stand-up PCs, please give them a try. You can find them:
If you would like support with either the new operating system or Office 2016, please contact the IT Service Desk using service.brookes.ac.uk
The next phase of this upgrade will allow staff and students access to University applications from their own Windows 10 devices, on or off campus.
