Can my school website see my other tabs and/or applications on my desktop?

Summary

* Your school’s website cannot see your other tabs or applications on your desktop unless it has access to your computer through remote access software.

Details

1. Introduction
* The question of whether a website can see your other tabs and/or applications is a common one, especially when it comes to school websites.
2. How the internet works
* When you visit a website, the website sends data to your computer, which is then displayed in your browser. This is known as a client-server relationship. The website cannot access any other tabs or applications on your computer unless it has specific software installed that allows it to do so.
3. Remote Access Software
* If your school’s website requires remote access software, this means that you are granting the website permission to access your computer remotely. In this case, the website could potentially see your other tabs and applications on your desktop. However, this would require specific software and your explicit permission.
4. Cookies and Tracking
* Websites can track what you do online through cookies and other tracking technologies. However, this typically only allows the website to see which websites you visit and what you do on those websites, not necessarily the other tabs or applications on your desktop.
5.

Conclusion

* In summary, your school’s website cannot see your other tabs or applications on your desktop unless it has specific software installed that allows it to access your computer remotely and you have granted permission for this access.
