On certain devices, such as a Chromebook, you will be using CloudPC with the HTML5 client. See below for more information on the HTML5 client.
Adding Applications to your CloudPC Desktop
If you've already set up Citrix on your computer, going to cloudpc.drew.edu should bring you to your CloudPC desktop, or storefront. This is where you can customize your available applications. To add an application, follow the arrow and click on the + sign on the left.
The applications are sorted into categories. These categories are similar to the folders in the previous CloudPC system.
If you wish, you can also use the Search bar in the upper right of the CloudPC Desktop.
Please note: Your list of available applications depends on your role(s) at Drew.
Clicking the application name in either the Applications Menu or the Search will add it to your CloudPC Desktop. Single-click an application to launch.
Connecting to Your Local and Network Drives
The first time you try to access your drives, you will be asked if Citrix Workspace has permission to access your files.
On a Windows computer, the approval prompt looks like this:
If you intend to both open files from and save files to your drives, you will want to select "Permit all access". You can check the box to not be asked again if you wish.

On a Mac, the prompt looks like this:
