You can quickly navigate to a published application from the Unity Touch sidebar. From this sidebar, you can start published applications, switch between running published applications, and minimize, maximize, restore, or close published applications. You can also switch to a remote desktop.

The Unity Touch feature is available only if a Horizon administrator has enabled it.

If the Unity Touch feature is enabled, the Unity Touch sidebar appears on the left side of the window when you first connect to a published application. If the Unity Touch sidebar is closed, a tab appears on the left side of the window. You can swipe this tab to the right to reopen the sidebar. You can also slide the tab up or down.
