Desktop rights can be used on Windows servers and workstations that have a traditional Windows desktop. If the computer you are using is running Windows 8 or 8.1, or Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2, Windows does not provide access to applications natively when you switch from the default desktop to a privileged desktop due to changes to the underlying interfaces and supported features within the operating system. To enable access to applications on computers running these versions of Windows, the Centrify Agent for Windows provides a custom start menu. The Centrify start menu allows you to open and run applications as you would on Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. The Centrify start menu is installed on the left side of the taskbar and displays the Centrify logo. This start menu is only available if you are using a role with Centrify desktop rights and cannot be modified.
