Back in the old days (so we’re talking about a week ago), it was necessary to install and manage the browser extension for Remote Desktop Manager separately. Well, those days are over thanks to the new bundled Devolutions Web Login!
Setting Up Devolutions Web Login
From Remote Desktop Manager, select Tools – Extension Manager, choose your browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Opera) and click Install. You’ll then be automatically directed to your browser’s web store, where you can add the extension.
We will be using Chrome for our example. From the Google Chrome web store, navigate to Devolutions Web Login extension and simply click the Add to Chrome button.
The Devolutions Web Login icon shows up on the toolbar. Click on the icon to select the app with which you wish to configure your Devolutions Web Login and click on Save. In our case we chose Remote Desktop Manager (make sure that the software is open). Then go to the website of your choice, enter your credentials (for the last time!) and log in.
A pop-up will appear at the top of your screen. If you wish to save your credentials as a new entry in the active data source of your Remote Desktop Manager, click Save Credentials.
You’ll then see the Devolutions Web Login icon in the credential box. The next time you connect to the site, simply click on the Devolutions Web Login icon to select the right entry and automatically login to the website. It’s quick and easy, which is what everyone wants!
Since we’ve decided to save the credentials within Remote Desktop Manager, if you go back into the software you will see in your Private Vault that a folder has been automatically created with your new entry. You can now launch your website straight from RDM! Now that’s service!
