If you have two or more monitors, you can select the monitors on which to display published application windows. For example, if you have three monitors, you can specify that published application windows appear on only two of those monitors.

You can select up to four adjacent monitors. The monitors can be side by side, or stacked vertically. For example, you might configure two rows of two monitors each.

Note: For 4K displays, the following restrictions apply:
  • For an application published on an RDS host, you can select up to four adjacent monitors.
  • For an application published on a Windows 10-hosted desktop, you can select up to three adjacent monitors. For information about Windows 10-hosted applications, see the "Deploying Applications that Run on Desktop Pools with VM Hosted Applications" topic in the Setting Up Virtual Desktops in Horizon document for your Horizon Agent version.


You must have two or more monitors.
