If you are connected to a remote desktop, you can switch to another desktop. You can also connect to remote applications while you are connected to a remote desktop.

Procedure

Select a remote desktop or application from the same server or a different server.

Option

Action

Choose a different desktop or application on the same server

Perform one of the following actions:

  • If you are logged in to a remote desktop and you want to switch to another remote desktop or application that is already running on your client, select the desktop or application from the View menu.

  • If you are logged in to a remote desktop or application and you want to switch to another desktop or application that is not running, select File > Return to Desktop and Applications List from the menu bar and then launch the desktop or application from the selector window.

  • From the desktop and application selector window, double-click the icon for the other desktop or application. That desktop or application opens in a new window so that you have multiple windows open, and you can switch between them.

Choose a different desktop or application on a different server

Perform either of the following actions:

  • If you want to keep the current desktop or application open and also connect to a remote desktop or application on another server, start a new instance of Horizon Client and connect to the other desktop or application.

  • If you want to close the current desktop and connect to a desktop on another server, go to the desktop selector window, click the Disconnect icon in the upper-left corner of the window, and confirm that you want to log off of the server. You will be disconnected from the current server and any open desktop or application sessions. You can then connect to a different server.
