  1. Go to and click Skip to Log on.
  2. You will then be able to access your applications.
  3. Save a file and choose the H: drive as the location.
  4. The first time you save to your H: drive, select the “Permit Use” setting and “Permit All Access” option to allow AnywhereApps access. (Note: Faculty in departments that don’t have IT-maintained home directories don’t have H: drives.)
  5. If you previously chose “Block access,” change this setting in the Connection Center (which is only available while you are using an app, such as MS Word) This is a blue circle icon in the sys tray.
  6. Left-click the up arrow to show hidden icons. Right-click the blue dot “Connection Center” and select “Open Connection Center.”
  7. Change the “Session Security Files:” settings to allow AnywhereApps access to you computer’s file system:  Change “No Access” to “Full Access.” You will now be able to save your files to the H: drive.
