You can use Bluetooth and docked keyboard devices and keyboards with remote desktops and published applications. You can also set preferences for settings, such as auto-capitalization and text correction.

Using External Keyboards and Input Devices

For information about the devices that a specific tablet supports, see the documentation from the tablet manufacturer.

For some external keyboards, Horizon Client detects the keyboard automatically. For other external keyboards, you must either tap the tablet screen with three fingers at the same time, or tap the Keyboard icon, to detect the keyboard. If you are using a remote desktop or published application in full-screen mode, the Keyboard icon is in the Horizon Client Tools radial menu. If you are not using full-screen mode, the Keyboard icon is on the Horizon Client toolbar.

Note: On Kindle Fire tablets, tapping with three fingers does not display the onscreen keyboard. You can instead use the Keyboard icon to show the onscreen keyboard.

After Horizon Client detects the external keyboard, you might not be able to use the Horizon Client Tools or three-finger tap to show the onscreen keyboard. You might first need to deactivate the external keyboard by pressing its Eject key.

Using International Onscreen Keyboards

With the correct input methods installed, you can input characters for English-United States, Japanese, French, German, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, and Spanish.

To select a language for the keyboard or voice, tap the Keyboard Settings key on the onscreen keyboard. The Keyboard Settings key is the left-most key on the bottom row of the onscreen keyboard. After you finish selecting settings, tap the Back button to close the dialog box.

Using a Stylus

For all Android devices that support a stylus, you can use a stylus in remote desktops and published applications. For example, you can use a stylus in remote desktops and published applications on a Samsung Galaxy S4. For full functionality, use the VMware Blast display protocol when you connect to the remote desktop or published application. If you use the PCoIP display protocol, the stylus behaves the same way as finger touch.
