Please Note: This room's Mac Mini has an external USB DVD drive (located on the left-side of the same rack enclosure as the Mac Mini), which allows for access of the DVD drive from both the Mac OS and a Windows Virtual Desktop session.

Ejecting the DVD:
If you are in a Windows Virtual Desktop session you will need to get back to the Mac OS desktop. You can do this either by ending your session (see instructions at the bottom of the page) or by pressing Command and Tab on the keyboard simultaneously to switch back to the Mac OS desktop; to return to your Windows session simply double-click on the LabImage icon in the VMWare Horizon View Client window.

From the Mac OS you can eject your disc by either pressing the eject button found in the top right corner of the keyboard or by clicking on the disc icon and dragging it to the trash can.
