Teleport Desktop Access supports copying and pasting text between your browser and a remote Windows Desktop.
This feature requires a Chromium-based browser such as Google Chrome, Brave, or Microsoft Edge. To use Desktop Access on other browsers, disable clipboard sharing.
Clipboard sharing is configured via Teleport's RBAC system. It is enabled by default, but can be disabled by setting the following role option on one or more of a user's roles:
kind: role version: v4 metadata: name: no_clipboard spec: options: desktop_clipboard: false
If a clipboard sharing is enabled for a user, the browser will prompt for access to the system clipboard when a desktop session is started. Grant this access to proceed.
If you mistakenly deny clipboard permissions, you can change this setting by clicking the lock on the left side of your address bar, toggling the clipboard permission, and refreshing the page.
When a desktop session is active, Teleport will indicate whether clipboard sharing is enabled in the menu bar at the top of the screen.
