This guide describes how to install, configure, and use VMware Horizon® Client™ for Chrome. This guide is written for administrators and end users of Horizon Client for Chrome.
You can also access this guide through the Help action in the Horizon Client user interface.
Horizon Client communicates with a server, which acts as a broker between the client device and remote desktops and published applications. You enter credentials into Horizon Client, the server authenticates your credentials, and then the server finds the remote desktops and published applications that you are entitled to use.
