- Office applications unavailable from Citrix Workspace APPS tab
Due to a compatibility issue Microsoft Office applications cannot be launched from the APPS tab and have been temporarily removed. Microsoft are investigating the issue. As soon as a fix has been found we plan to make the Microsoft Office applications available again.
Please note: Microsoft Office applications are still available from Desktop@UCL Anywhere's DESKTOP.
Access Desktop@UCL Anywhere
For the best Desktop @ UCL Anywhere experience we recommend downloading and installing Citrix Workspace (formerly Citrix Receiver) before you log in.
Can't install Citrix Workspace?
If you are unable to install Citrix Workspace on your computer or device then alternatively you can access Desktop@UCL Anywhere directly from your web browser.
You will need to ensure your computer/device is running a supported web browser.
Please note: Without Citrix Workspace installed you will be running the 'light' version of Desktop @ UCL so some features may not be available.
