UD Pocket



The UD Pocket comes in a small package, just open it up and take out the USB stick – you have the device for your workplace in one hand!

Depending on the device, use the USB standard port or the Type-C port.
For Type-C, remove the black cover from the end of the UD pocket.

Please read this point thoroughly and follow the sequence below when starting the UD Pocket.

Before we start, you need to know with which key you can enter the boot menu of your PC/notebook.

The boot menu depends on the manufacturer. We have created a table with the most common boot menu keys.

If your device is not included, you will find this information in the manual of your PC/notebook.
Here are a few examples of what it may look like.



You will receive a selection of bootable devices. Here, please select EFI Boot and confirm by double-clicking with the mouse.

How to start the UD Pocket

Tips & Tricks


If your desktop does not start as expected after the setup, please reboot it first. If your desktop still does not look as usual, run the ICG Onboarding Guide again.


  • If you use two screens or a notebook and an additional screen, the latter is automatically recognised and integrated.
  • Screen resolutions are partially “interpolated”. This means that displayed pixels are partially calculated. If this is the case, it can lead to a blurred picture. In this case, you should choose a different resolution
  • Touchpad: Our tests have shown that not all touchpads are supported. This can mean that a touchpad is not recognised at all or does not offer the full range of functions.


Apple Mac Computer

  • The @ sign is located on the key of the letter “L” on keyboards for Apple devices. If you are using an Apple operating system (OSX), you can reach the @ sign with the key combination Alt+L.
  • The Alt key is designated and labelled differently: Option, ⌥, Option.
  • Under Citrix, this key combination is assigned differently and locks the screen. To circumvent this, use the key combination Control+Alt+q to display the @ sign or right Alt+q.
