Operating Systems


Windows will be activated, when you receive your computer, but must have periodic UBC network access to remain active.

Windows 10

Psychiatry IT prepares all new computers with Windows 10.  Please click this link for some tips, to help you get going.

Windows 8.1

Windows 8.1 became our default operating system in Fall 2013.  In order for our existing management systems to work and to make the transition easier for users of older Windows operating systems, your computer will go to the traditional desktop, after you log on.  Tablet users should drag up, from the bottom edge of the screen, to enter your logon username and passphrase.  Psychiatry IT has prepared some Windows 8.1 tips, to help you get going.  We will no longer support Windows 8.1 or allow it on our network, after January 10, 2023.
