With the multiple monitor feature, you can extend a remote desktop to one external monitor.

To enable the multiple monitor feature for Horizon Client, you install a helper extension and enable Unified Desktop Mode on your Chromebook.

You must install the helper extension to make the remote desktop window display correctly on an external monitor when the Chromebook display and the external display have different width-to-length ratios.


  1. Log in to your Chromebook.
  2. Download and install the VMware Horizon Client Helper extension from the Chrome Web Store.
  3. Open a browser window on your Chromebook and type chrome://flags in the URL bar.
  4. Scroll down to Unified desktop mode and click Enable.
  5. Click Restart Now to restart your Chromebook and make the change take effect.

What to do next

After your Chromebook restarts, you can open the Chromebook Settings and click Display settings to configure Unified Desktop display options.

To extend a remote desktop window to the external monitor, click the Maximize button. You can click the Restore button to make the remote desktop window go back to the Chromebook monitor.
