Start button

Most often the Start button will say just that, and automatically offer the best delivery method. In some apps you will however be presented with several options to launch the app. If you are in doubt about which one to use, please ask a colleague or your subject teacher.

Overview of start options:

Start - automatic, decides best launch method for you

Start (with a star/asterisk in front) - requires that VPN is started, if you are not on campus

Download - for download and local installation

NB! If you are using Windows, the application will be automatically available locally in Windows, as long as you have the right to use it from NTNU. You can find the app locally in Windows by using the Windows start button or search function (magnifying glass) and type in the name, and can also create a shortcut to it once found there.

Change language

In AppsAnywhere you can choose between Norwegian and English. There are two ways to change the language:

  • You can choose the language when you sign in with your NTNU account. Select the drop-down menu above where you put your credentials.
