Just like with any PC or Mac you can customize your AlwaysOnPC virtual computer’s background image to any image you like. From your account you can select an image or even import your own image.
To make these changes on your AlwaysOnPC virtual computer, log in and click on System at the bottom of your screen, and then select Preferences, then Appearance and select Background. This will give you a list of images that you can choose from as well as link to site where you can download additional images. You can also get to this menu, by using the two finger tap for the “right-click” menu. You can also add images to the list by importing them, either through an application such as DropBox or by emailing them to yourself and saving them to your AlwaysOnPC virtual computer.
In FireFox there is an easy way to change to full screen mode. This allows you more space on iPad or iPhone to view the website you want when using AlwaysOnPC. This video shows you how to go about that and also includes the steps to add the Google Toolbar into your AlwaysOnPC FireFox browser.
To change to full screen mode in Firefox click on View and the scroll down to full screen mode. To change back to regular view click on the resize or restore button in the upper right hand corner (it will appear if you move the cursor there). To customize your toolbar to include a button that lets you toggle between full screen mode and regular view click View, and then Toolbars and the scroll down to Customize and from the menu select the button you want to add to your toolbar. To install the Google Toolbar simply go to http://www.google.com/toolbar/ff/index.html and download.
With the advent of the iPad and iPhone, we can enjoy the convenience of being able to browse online anywhere we have good wifi. Now we can check email, play our favorite games and shop online on the go without having to be tethered to our computer. However the iPad and iPhone do not support Adobe Flash, limiting which sits we can visit on the go. Now AlwaysOnPC has a solution, with the AlwaysOnPC app you can browse Flash based websites from your iPad and iPhone.
