Software Standards

Listed below are the applications that make up the USF standard software images, installed on every computer.

Please be aware that for applications not part of the standard image, the Help Desk can troubleshoot basic installation and compatibility issues, and will make our best effort to support specific functional needs. We may not be able to support more complex software-specific requirements and problems due to the specialized nature of the software. We strongly encourage faculty and staff to contact the Center for Instructional Technology for any training that may be required for effective use of the software.
