Desktop Icon Positioning:
Currently, we are aware that Citrix is not always saving desktop icon position once a user arranges these icons, logs out and then initiates a new session. This is a known issue within the Citrix community and we will need to await vendor response before being able to implement a solution.
Internet Explorer 8 Compatibility:
Presently, Oakwood Worldwide only supports the Internet Explorer 8 browser for all internal Oakwood applications and corporate websites. Internet Explorer 8 is the current default browser within Citrix.
Google Chrome Compatibility:
Chrome has been installed on the Citrix desktop as a workaround to view non-Oakwood affiliated websites that may require an updated browser. Additionally, if you experience any problems viewing links, you will need to copy and paste the web address into the Chrome address bar.
