Windows Virtual Desktop: Changes for Spring 2021

January 15, 2021

In preparation for the Spring 2021 semester, we are making some changes to Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD).

Starting Wednesday, January 20:

  • WVD apps and software will be grouped together under “UMass Classroom,” using a traditional desktop view.
  • Previously stand-alone apps will be located in your “UMass Classroom.”
  • The suite of applications available through WVD remains the same.

This change is intended to make it easier to find the apps or software you need and optimize your ability to connect and save files to OneDrive.

Please see the WVD pages on the IT website for updated instructions and illustrations in the weeks to come. For questions, email
