The Microsoft RDP app is free and your credit card should not be charged for it.

9. Click  in the bottom left of the window.




10. This will open the Edit Desktop window. 



Under Friendly Name, type ICANotes for easy identification.



The ‘Swap mouse buttons’ option may be useful if you are a left-handed mouse user. If you are using the trackpad (such as on a Macbook Air or Macbook Pro) the left side of the trackpad will be your right-click, and the right-side of the trackpad will be your left click.


If you are not left-handed, you do not need to check this option.





11. Click the  tab to move to the next area.

ICANotes will open in either fullscreen or windowed mode. If you prefer windowed mode you can minimize ICANotes by clicking on the YELLOW icon at the top left of the window.





16. Once you are logged into ICANotes you can close out the connection screen (optional). Otherwise, when you click on the orange RDP icon in your dock (when minimized) it will bring up the connection screen instead of ICANotes.

16. To keep ICANotes in your dock for easy access, right-click and from Options choose Keep in Dock.
