You can transfer files from the client device to a remote desktop or published application. You might also be able to transfer files from a remote desktop or published application to the client system.
To upload a file, drag the file from the client system to the remote desktop or published application window. When the upload is finished, the file appears in the C:\Users\username\Documents folder.
To download a file, select the file in the remote desktop or published application by pressing Ctrl+C. After you confirm the file transfer, the file appears in the Downloads directory on the client device.
A Horizon administrator can configure the ability to allow, disallow, or allow in one direction only, the transfer of files. The default is to only transfer files from the client system to a remote desktop or published application.
This feature has the following limitations.
- You can download files up to 500 MB and upload files up to 2 GB.
- You cannot download or upload folders or files that have a size of zero.
- If a file transfer is in progress in a remote session and you open a connection to a second remote session, and if a security warning appears, if you ignore the warning and continue to connect to the second remote session the file transfer in the first session aborts.
