If you have two or more monitors, but you want a remote desktop window to appear on only one monitor, you can configure the remote desktop window to open on a single monitor.


You must have two or more monitors.


  1. Start Horizon Client and connect to a server.
  2. Right-click the remote desktop in the desktop and application selection window and select Settings.
  3. From the Display drop-down menu, select Full Screen - This Monitor, Large Screen, Small Screen, or Custom Size.
    Large Screen maximizes the window size. Small Screen sets the window size to 640 x 480 pixels in 100 percent scaling. If you select Custom Size, you can select a specific window size.


By default, the remote desktop window opens on the primary monitor. You can drag the remote desktop window to a non-primary monitor, and the next time you open the remote desktop, the remote desktop window appears on that same monitor. The window opens, is centered in the monitor, and uses the window size that you selected for the display mode, not a size that you might have created by dragging the window to resize it.
