Open a File from Connected Desktop

Overview

You can open a file while using the Connected Desktop, and the file will open in the default program you have set on your computer to open that type of file. You can then view, edit, and save the file without the need to manually download the file from SmartVault. Any changes you make and save to the file while working with the file in the Connected Desktop are automatically saved to the file in SmartVault as well.

Steps

  1. Locate the file to open in the Connected Desktop.
  2. Double click on the file.
    (You can also right click on the file and select Open from the menu that appears.)
