You can configure Horizon Client to start automatically when you switch the Android device to DeX desktop mode. The DeX mode auto launch feature is disabled by default.


  • Verify that the Android device supports Samsung DeX.

  • Verify that a default server is not configured for Horizon Client. You cannot enable the DeX mode auto launch feature if a default server is configured.


  1. Before you log in to a server, tap the Settings (gear) icon in the upper-right corner of the Horizon Client window.
  2. Tap Display, tap Dex Mode Auto Launch, and select the Dex Mode Auto Launch check box.


If you added a remote desktop or published application shortcut to the Android home screen, Horizon Client connects to the most recent shortcut after Horizon Client starts. For information about adding shortcuts to the Android home screen, see Add a Shortcut to the Android Home Screen or Chrome App Launcher.
