    Windows 2012 RD Web access question

    RD Web access is set up ready to go for us - just one last thing I have been trying to figure out - we have all the MS office apps and SIMS/ pars etc on the Remote apps working fine - I would like to put a "computer" shortcut on there so they can access their mapped shares - is this possible using RD remoteapps ?
    At the moment they will have to go into MS Word and open a word document through File\open etc... same with Excel, ppt etc...
    I know this will be the first question they ask when I deploy to staff

    thanks

    Yes, you just need to create a remoteapp pointing to windows explorer (explorer.exe). this should then give you access to my computer as well as any mapped drives.
