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.

Prerequisites

Obtain the credentials that you use to log in, such as your Active Directory user name and password, RSA SecurID user name and passcode, or RADIUS authentication user name and passcode.

Procedure

  1. On the Servers tab, tap the server shortcut.
  2. If prompted, supply your RSA user name and passcode, your Active Directory user name and password, or both.
  3. On the All tab, tap and hold the desktop shortcut until the context menu appears.

    If the desktop is a favorite, you can also perform this step on the Favorites tab.

  4. Tap Log Off in the context menu.

Results

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

What to do next

Tap the back arrow in the upper-left corner of the Horizon Client window, or the Disconnect icon in the upper-right corner of the Horizon Client window, and tap Log Out to disconnect from the server.
