Adding your Username and Password to a Go-Global Icon.
This is an easy process and the steps are outlined below, but before you begin please find your list of server addresses and your username and password.
***NOTE*** do not do this on a public PC, make sure you are the only person with access to this machine.
Step 1: Creating the Icons
- You will need to create a shortcut for each county that you will be accessing on your desktop. This is very simple to do, just click on “Go-Global”, when it asks for the Server address, enter the address and click the box under that address. It should say “Create a desktop icon”.
- When it asks you for the Username and password, you can cancel.
- The only thing we wanted to do was create the icon.
- Repeat this for each of your counties.
- You can rename each of these icons to just the county name if you want. Simply right click on the icon and select “rename”
Step 2: Adding the Username/Password to the Icon
- Select an icon that you want to change
- Right click on the icon
- Select “Properties”
- You should now see a line called “Target”, the box beside it should contain information about GO-Global.
- Click on this box and go to the far right… Just past the -c
- after the -c you will space one time
- now enter -u username
put your username here… NOT the word username
The username should be in all upper case letters
- now enter -p password – put your password here… NOT the word password
Make sure you do the right case
- Click on the “OK” at the bottom of the screen and you are done.
- Now when you click on this icon, GO-Global will open and log you into the system automatically without asking you for the server address or the Log-in information
