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

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