Switching from SideKick
For best results when switching from SideKick to the new Rubex Desktop App, you want to start by uninstalling any add-ons you’ve previously installed through SideKick. This can be done from within SideKick itself.
Start by opening up SideKick and logging in, then clicking on the ‘Add-ons’ button at the bottom left.
In the add-ons list, uncheck all currently checked options and hit ‘Apply’ to begin uninstalling them.
Once that is completed, you are ready to install the Rubex Desktop App. You can uninstall SideKick from the Windows Control Panel, but it is by no means required.
To continue with installing the Rubex Desktop App, start by logging in to your Rubex account at http://account.efilecabinet.net.
Once logged in, click on the main menu icon at the top left and select ‘Install Application’ to download the Rubex Desktop App installer. Run the installer when the download is completed.
For full installation instructions, please refer to our Rubex Desktop App installation guide found here.
Installing the Rubex Desktop App Add-ons
Once the Rubex Desktop App is installed, you can install our optional add-ons from within the application.
Start by opening the Rubex Desktop App and logging in if you have not done so already.
- Once logged in, click on the gear icon located at the top right of the Rubex window to open up the settings page.
- In the settings window that appears, locate the add-ons section at the top and click on the ‘Install’ button next to the Printer and Scanner.
The installation will begin immediately upon clicking the ‘Install’ button and, when completed, you will notice the ‘Install’ button changes to ‘Uninstall’.
For information on how to use the printer and scanner add-ons, please refer to our usage guide found here.
