How to use accelerated login on lecturer's PC

To simplify the log-in process, a new accelerated log-in application has been installed on the lecturers' PC in the room. This is the only log-in option on the teacher's PC and provides lecturers with the ability to log in using a single sign-on. One of the benefits is that all Windows Office packages will open instantly, without needing extra user authentication. In addition, any type of file from Windows Office Suite can quickly open, when it is saved on a network location (OneDriveM: drive or W: drive).

The single sign-on works for the following Windows Office packages:

  1. PowerPoint
  2. Word
  3. Excel
  4. Outlook
  5. MS-Teams
  6. Edge browser

If you are using Google chrome make sure to transfer your bookmarked pages into Edge browser, to skip an extra authentication!

Prepare for the accelerated login
