The tool will download a Remote Desktop Program (RDP) connection file.  This file contains information for connecting to a lab computer and will allow you to connect to its screen and have access to its programs as if you were sitting in front of it on campus. You do not need any special technical knowledge to use this tool.  

Download progress will appear in the bottom status bar of the browser. When it is finished, click on the file name in the status bar to start the connection process. Or navigate to the Downloads folder and double click the RDP file to launch.
