You can log off from a remote desktop operating system, even if you do not have a desktop open in Horizon Client.

If you are currently connected to and logged in to a remote desktop, you can use the Windows Start menu to log off. After Windows logs you off, the desktop is disconnected.

Note: Any unsaved files that are open on the remote desktop are closed during the logoff operation.
