Desktop Icon For LockDown Browser Will Not Launch

Now the Respondus LockDown Browser “auto-launches” from a standard browser in Brightspace when a quiz requires it.

Beginning June 1, 2017, students will no longer be able to manually launch LockDown Browser (using a desktop shortcut) and then log into Brightspace. If they attempt to do that, they will encounter this message:

LockDown Browser shouldn't be started manually. Use a standard browser (eg. Chrome, IE, Firefox, etc.) to navigate to the exam and LockDown Browser will launch automatically when it's required.

If you encounter this message, return to one of the Browsers Supported by Brightspace to begin your quiz.
