How To: Open the Software Center (Windows) or Self Service (Mac) on a Duquesne-managed Computer


Nearly all Duquesne-managed Macs and PCs are configured with an "endpoint configuration manager." This is a type of software that enables users to self-install selected Duquesne-managed software, and helps keep them fully up-to-date. Sometimes, it is necessary to access this endpoint configuration manager in order to install new software or update existing software on your device. On Windows, the manager is called the Software Center, and on Mac, it is called Self Service. This article explains how you can launch both.
