This is also useful at the I-MATH Terminals, if the screen size does not fit perfectly to the monitor (deactivate and then activate the fullscreen mode again).

Connect Session


Disconnect Session

Get a new and fresh session

Sometimes it happens that your session is locked for some reason (crashed apps, quota problem, ...). A session disconnect / reconnect does not improve the situation.

Please check the option End existing session in the tlclient login window and log in again. Your old session will be killed and a new session will be created. All open applications will be terminated. Open files might be lost. Use is with caution!
