You can run the Sensory Apps in most internet web browsers, the most popular being Chrome, Safari and Edge. In order to run an app "live", click the app icon from the app page, which will open and launch the Sensory App in a new browser tab.
Clicking or tapping the app launch screen will load app and fill the screen or the browser window. If you tap or click on some apps, they will automatically change to fill the whole of your screen like any other apps.
If the app fills the window, but isn't full screen, maximise the window to full screen using your browser menu or settings, and the app will run as full screen.
Press ESC key, click/tap the X button to remove the app from full screen, and it will continue to run in its tab or window. Close the tab or window if you are finished.
