If you are a single-monitor user (or even if you use an external monitor) it may be handy to have multiple virtual desktops. Juggling different projects on the same computer can be tricky but using a virtual desktop can be very similar to using multiple monitors giving you more space to work.
Multiple desktops are great for keeping unrelated, ongoing projects organized, or for quickly switching desktops before a meeting. You can add an unlimited number of them as well.
These instructions can be found in the knowledge base article titled Utilizing Multiple Desktops. Please feel free to bookmark it for future reference.

GRCC’s annual Raider Rally is coming soon. New students enrolled for the fall semester are invited to come to campus to join faculty and staff for a fun, welcoming event.
We will have food and free giveaways. Additionally, students will be able to speak with academic departments and student organizations. Students will also be able to get their RaiderCard and books, and tour campus.
We need your help to pull off this huge event. If your office or department would like to host a table that day, please fill out this form: Department Sign Up

We are looking for volunteers to help with the Information Stations that will be set up for the first three days of the new semester.
Sharing in the excitement of new opportunities, easing nerves, and helping students find their way is a great way to start the semester and show our students that we support them.
As we have in the recent past, we will have stations set up Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, August 29 through August 30 in four locations.
The stations on the north end of the Dr. Juan Olivarez Plaza, the first floor of Sneden Hall and the fourth floor of the Finkelstein (Main) Building will be open from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday and from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday.
The station at the second floor entrance of the ATC will be open from 5-6:30 p.m.
